Glaucoma is the name for a group of diseases which causes gradual degeneration to the optic nerve. Glaucoma is caused by a number of factors including high internal pressure of the eye, poor blood flow to the eye, and genetic factors. Glaucoma affects the peripheral vision, and often goes unnoticed by the patient. Patients with Glaucoma, or those with families with a history of Glaucoma, should have regular eye examinations.
