Glaucoma is the name for a group of eye conditions in which the optic nerve   is damaged at the point where it leaves the eye. This nerve carries   information from the light sensitive layer in your eye, the retina, to the brain where it is perceived as a picture.
Your eye needs a certain amount of pressure to keep the eyeball in shape so   that it can work properly. In some people, the glaucoma damage is caused   by raised eye pressure. Others may have an eye pressure within normal limits but damage occurs because there is a weakness in the optic nerve. In   most cases, both factors of high pressure and weakness in the optic nerve   are involved, but to a varying extent.
