What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions in which damage to the optic nerve leads to loss of vision. Because the vision loss is often gradual and there are few other symptoms, many people in the early stages of glaucoma are unaware they have it. Glaucoma is much more common in people aged 40 years and over.
