Normal Vision & Glaucoma

The transparent part of an eye located in front is known as cornea. An extra layer called the conjunctiva also covers the front part of the eye. The back of the eye is called retina. The retina changes light signals into electric signals. These electric signals are sent through the optic nerve to the brain, which translates these signals into the image we see.

The eye has the anterior chamber and a back or posterior chamber. A clear fluid called aqueous humor collects in the anterior chamber of your eye. The fluid then gets drained through a spongy meshwork in an area called the 'angle'.

If the fluid does not get drained on regular basis, it builds up in the anterior chamber. When the fluid builds up, tension and pressure inside the eye increase.

This increase in pressure causes damage to the eye and the optic nerve resulting in the condition called glaucoma, which if left untreated can lead to blindness.
