High eye pressure, or glaucoma, is a slowly progressive disease of the optic nerve. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma slows down the development of visual impairment. The progression of glaucoma is insidious, as the disease normally does not cause any symptoms and central visual acuity remains good for a long time.

 

The reference range of normal intraocular pressure is 10–21 mmHg. The primary treatment is continuous, regular medication with eye drops lowering the intraocular pressure.
