Let’s know about it-
What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a disease occurring in the eyes. Glaucoma is also known as black cataract or Kala Pani of the eyes in Hindi.
Due to glaucoma or cataract, the light of the eyes gradually disappears completely.
This can also be one of the reasons for the decrease in eyesight.
Glaucoma or black cataract (Glaucoma in the eyes) can happen to a person of any age.
How does Glaucoma happen?
Our eye is round and filled with fluid and a jelly-like substance. Due to which the eye is made in a circular shape. If this material is removed, it will deflate. This substance is called Aqueous humor and Vitreous humor.
The normal pressure or pressure of the eye is between 10 to 21 mmHg.
If the amount of this substance increases in the eye, then the eye becomes hard due to which the pressure in the eye increases.
The increased pressure caused by the substance exerts pressure on the retina and is linked to the nervous system. Due to which the nervous system gets damaged and the eyesight gradually decreases.
Who can get glaucoma
Glaucoma can also be caused by cataracts. When the cataract ripens too much and it is not removed by operation, it bursts inside the eye. Due to which the pressure of the eye increases very much and it becomes glaucoma or black cataract.
A person becomes completely blind due to glaucoma.
Glaucoma can also occur due to heredity, so those people whose parents had glaucoma should be regularly examined.Glaucoma can also occur in the newborn.
Those people whose glasses number is in minus or whose glasses number is changing frequently. They may also have glaucoma. Such people should get tested for glaucoma.
