Close-up of a sore, inflamed eye in acute glaucoma, with an irregularly enlarged pupil. Glaucoma describes an abnormally high intraocular pressure, the pressure within the eye. Primary glaucoma exists in the absence of any other eye disease; secondary glaucoma is due to pre-existing eye disease that disrupts the normal circulation of aqueous humour within the eye. Primary glaucoma occurs increasingly with age & is an important cause of blindness. Treatment is directed at reducing the intraocular pressure, through the use of drugs (diuretics) and surgical drainage. Compare with M155/205, same eye with contact lens.
