Open-Angle Glaucoma overview

Open-angle glaucoma is a chronic eye condition characterized by increased intraocular pressure (IOP) that damages the optic nerve, leading to gradual and irreversible vision loss. It is the most common form of glaucoma and develops slowly over time, often without noticeable symptoms in the early stages. In open-angle glaucoma, the drainage system within the eye becomes less efficient over time, leading to a buildup of aqueous humor (fluid) and an increase in intraocular pressure. Elevated pressure damages the optic nerve, which transmits visual information to the brain, causing gradual vision loss. Risk factors include age (more common in individuals over 40), family history of glaucoma, high IOP, certain medical conditions (such as diabetes and hypertension), and certain ethnicities (African Americans have a higher risk). Early-stage, open-angle glaucoma often presents without noticeable symptoms or vision changes. As the condition progresses, peripheral vision loss (usually unnoticed at first) gradually advances to tunnel vision and, if untreated, can lead to complete blindness.
