In this video, eye surgeon Dr. David Richardson on why a holistic approach to glaucoma is essential and why intraocular pressure itself is only one of the components of glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a common eye disease that causes damage to the optic nerve that connects the eye to the brain. It is usually caused by buildup of fluid in the front of the eye that increases the pressure in the eye. The condition can lead to vision loss if not diagnosed and treated early.
In treating glaucoma, Dr. Richardson, it is important to focus on other problems associated with glaucoma in addition to building pressure.
