Defining glaucoma and its implications

Glaucoma is a chronic pathology characterised by a progressive damage of the optic nerve, i.e. the connection between the eye and the cerebral nervous centres where the visual information arrives. The aqueous humour that is continuously produced in the eyeball cannot correctly flow out. This causes an increase in internal pressure of the eye which in turn presses against the nerve and worsens its blood supply.
