Glaucoma
6th October 2009
 
Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve thought to be associated with reduced blood flow. There are several forms of the disease but the most common form results in a slowly progressive loss of peripheral vision. It is often associated with raised pressure within the eye. There are now several types of eye drops which effectively reduce pressure.
