Were you looking for information about Glaucoma? Gluacoma is a common misspelling of glaucoma.
Glaucoma is not a single illness but rather a group of diseases that share certain features. Common features include high pressure within the eye, loss of peripheral vision, and damage to the optic nerve. There are many different types of glaucoma, with open angle glaucoma being the most common. People with this condition usually have no symptoms at first but may gradually experience narrowed vision or blindness. Several treatment options are available, including medications, traditional surgery, and laser surgery.
