Glaucoma overview

Glaucoma is a disease of the eye in which fluid pressure within the eye rises. The exact cause of optic nerve damage from glaucoma is not fully understood, but involves mechanical compression and/or decreased blood flow to the optic nerve. The most important risk factors include age, elevated eye pressure, African ancestry, thin cornea, and family history of glaucoma. Signs and symptoms include eye pain, nausea and vomiting (accompanying the severe eye pain), sudden onset of visual disturbance (often in low light), blurred vision, and reddening of the eye.
