El glaucoma como efecto del aumento de la presión intraocular

  1. The clear liquid that normally fills the chambers of the eye is called aqueous humor. It passes through a special membrane called the trabecular meshwork.
  2. In open-angle glaucoma, the flow of this fluid becomes impaired, much like a sink that cannot drain, leading to increased pressure in the eye.
  3. To much abnormal pressure damages the optic nerve, which can eventually lead to blindness.
