What is open-angle glaucoma?

Open-angle glaucoma occurs when, despite the eye's anterior chamber angle being open, the drainage of fluid from the eye becomes blocked. This can lead to increased pressure inside the eye and damage to the optic nerve. Most people with open-angle glaucoma are affected in both eyes.
