Description of Age-Related Eye Conditions: Glaucoma Lecture

These lectures define glaucoma, the importance of advanced screening and who is susceptible to the condition. The disease affects peripheral vision and has no symptoms. Essentially, glaucoma is what happens if you look at the eye as a sink, the faucet that pours the water in and there is a drainage channel that gets the water out. Any imbalance between the water pouring in too fast or the drain plumbing not filtering fast enough makes fluid build up. When an enormous amount of fluid builds up, pressing on the nerve to cause stress, glaucoma develops. All age groups are susceptible to glaucoma; it can occur in children and can even be present in utero or at birth. Glaucoma is not just a disease of old age.
