Increased pressure in the eyes can damage the optic nerve. Severe damage of the optic nerve results in loss of vision. If Glaucoma can be treated early, you can protect your vision.
Glaucoma can turn out to be a very serious issue if it is not treated on time. As people with glaucoma do not feel any pain and since there is no early indication, it can be very hard to detect. Regular eye check-up can help detect glaucoma at an early stage, thus preventing vision loss. In addition to relying on modern medicine for treating glaucoma, many people are using alternative form of treatment, such as acupuncture for treating glaucoma.
