The pressure in the eye caused by a production of aqueous fluid behind the lens of the eye. This aqueous fluid then flows around the lens and drains out of the eye through an area called the angle. The angle is where the cornea and iris meet inside the eye. If a glaucoma patient has a narrow angle then aqueous cannot reach the drainage port and pressure increases dramatically causing severe redness, pain and blurred vision. This condition is treated by laser.

“How do I know if I have glaucoma?”
The simple answer is that you don’t. Glaucoma has no symptoms. It must be diagnosed in an eye doctor’s office.
“If I am diagnosed with glaucoma, will I go blind?"
Glaucoma is actually quite easy to treat, either with eye drops or laser.
