Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a kind of eye problem in which high fluid pressure inside the eye damages the optic nerve, leading eventually to blindness. One of the first signs of glaucoma is loss of peripheral vision. People with diabetes and high blood pressure should check their eyes regularly for vision loss from glaucoma.

Join our online support group for people with glaucoma to meet others with the condition and talk to experts who can help.
