Were you looking for information about Glaucoma? Glycoma is a common misspelling of glaucoma.
Glaucoma is the name for a group of diseases that share features such as high pressure within the eye, loss of peripheral vision, and damage to the optic nerve. It is the leading cause of blindness in the United States and is incurable. However, early detection and treatment of glaucoma (before it causes major vision loss) can help control the condition. Treatment options may include medications, surgery, and laser surgery.
