Although glaucoma is a serious, lifelong eye disease that can lead to vision loss if not controlled.

For most people, glaucoma does not have to lead to blindness. That is because glaucoma is controllable with modern treatment, and there are many choices to help keep glaucoma from further damaging your eyes.

With all types of glaucoma, the nerve connecting the eye to the brain is damaged, usually due to high eye pressure.

Can glaucoma be stopped?
The damage caused by glaucoma can't be reversed. But treatment and regular checkups can help slow or prevent vision loss, especially if you catch the disease in its early stages. Glaucoma is treated by lowering your eye pressure (intraocular pressure)
