What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is an eye disease characterized by an increase in intraocular pressure that causes pathologic changes in the optic disk and typical defects in the field of vision.

Reports may be affected by other conditions and/or medication side effects. We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, insomnia, fatigue, and pain) regardless of condition.
