Bahaya glaukoma dan cara mengobatinya
Glaucoma occurs when the pressure inside the eye increases as the eye fluid can not flow properly. This increased pressure then damages the sensory nerve tissue of the back of the eye (retinal nerve fibers) and the nerve that connects the eye to the brain (the optic nerve).Eye or aqueous humor is an important substance in our eyes. Each day this substance is produced and flowed constantly from the eye to the bloodstream through a drainage line called trabecular meshwork. Aqueous humour also produces pressure to keep the shape of our eyes. In the eyes of healthy people, aqueous humor flows smoothly and pressure stays at safe limits. In contrast, in glaucoma patients, the aqueous humour flow is disrupted and the pressure inside the eye increases.
