WHAT IS GLAUCOMA?
by Dr. Cesar A. Perez, Jr.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that mainly damages the optic nerve, which leads to visual loss and blindness. Unlike other eye problems, glaucoma usually has no signs and symptoms especially in its early stages. In its late stage, peripheral vision is affected which eventually leads to permanent visual handicap.
