Glaucoma is a serious eye disease often called “the silent thief of sight” as it affects unsuspecting people and robs them of their eye sight. Many people affected with the disease do not realise they have the condition. This is because the disease is slow, insidious and affects the eyes unequally. Persons affected often carry on living normal lives whilst the disease destroys the nerves of their eyes. The tragedy is that there is no treatment to recover that part of the eyesight which is lost and if there is no timely detection and intervention, it can lead to irreversible blindness. It is not an uncommon disease. Glaucoma is the third leading cause of blindness in India and 12 million people are affected accounting for 12.8% of the blindness in our country.
