Each type of glaucoma treatment is different from other treatments.
The most common type of glaucoma is chronic glaucoma. This disease is caused by a defect in the organ responsible for filtering the liquid water out of the eye.

Is Glaucoma Dangerous?
Glaucoma is one of the major causes of blindness in older people and blindness can be prevented if early treatment is seen. Early diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma are the major factors in preventing blindness.
The risk is that it causes permanent loss of vision if not detected and treated early. When the pressure in the eye increases its normal rate, all internal eye tissue is affected by this rise in pressure. The veins of the blood nerve and some layers of the retina are damaged. Hence the importance of early diagnosis and interest in the use of treatment constantly so as not to increase the pressure of normal rate and keep the optic nerve in good condition
