Glaucoma- causes, symptoms, and prevention
Optic nerve damage from glaucoma affects your eye. It typically occurs when liquid forms in the front part of your eye. Your eye becomes more stressed as a result of the increased liquid, which harms the optic nerve.

There are more than 1,000,000 tiny nerve filaments in the optic nerve. It looks like a series of tiny wires that make up an electric wire. You will develop weak spots in your vision as these nerve strands continue to spread. It’s possible that until the majority of your optic nerve strands have died, you won’t notice these weak areas. In the case that all of the strands fail, you will lose your vision.

For people over 60, glaucoma is the leading cause of visual impairment. However, glaucoma vision impairment can frequently be avoided with early treatment.

Causes of glaucoma
Your eye creates fluid humor all the time. The same amount of fluid that enters your eye should also flow out. The waste point is the point where the liquid exits. The intraocular tension, or IOP, in the eye is stable by this cycle. However, if the waste point isn’t operating as it should, the liquid will form. The optic nerve is harmed as a result of increased internal strain.

Sometimes it’s unclear why the pressure in your eyes rises. However, health doctors think one or more of the following may be involved:

eyedrops that dilate your pupils;
obstructions or restrictions in your eye’s discharge; and drugs like corticosteroids
Your optic nerve’s blood supply is inadequate or diminished.
raised or high blood pressure.
