Monitoring glaucoma at home may be a possibility soon
Glaucoma, a chronic condition that affects the cells at the back of the eye, is the leading cause of irreversible blindness across the world.
Study suggests that in future glaucoma eye tests could be performed at home
Glaucoma is a chronic condition that affects cells at the back of the eye. It is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide, and is responsible for 1 in 10 cases of serious sight impairment in the UK.
Air pollution linked to higher glaucoma risk
Living in a more polluted area is associated with a greater likelihood of having glaucoma, a debilitating eye condition that can cause blindness, a new UCL-led study in the UK has found.
Five things you didn’t know about Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a common eye condition where the optic nerve becomes damaged. It usually occurs as a result of fluid building up in the front part of the eye, which increases pressure inside the eye. If the condition is left untreated or not treated early enough it can lead to loss of vision.
Study: Glaucoma may be autoimmune disorder
The eye disease glaucoma may be an autoimmune disorder, a new study suggested.
Could drinking tea be linked to a lower glaucoma risk?
Drinking hot tea could be linked to a lower risk of having an eye condition that can lead to blindness, research has suggested — although experts say the study does not show that the brew offers any protective effect.
Could 'zaps' to the brain help fight glaucoma?
Electrical pulses to the brain may help restore vision in some partially blind patients, German researchers report.
Green, leafy vegetables may help keep glaucoma at bay
Eating green leafy vegetables daily may decrease the risk of glaucoma, a serious eye disease, by 20 percent or more over many years, a new study suggests.
Metformin may lower glaucoma risk
The diabetes drug metformin was linked to a lower risk of developing the eye condition glaucoma in a new study.
DNA sequencing helps identify genetic defects in glaucoma
Scientists from the University of Liverpool have sequenced the mitochondrial genome in glaucoma patients to help further understanding into the genetic basis for the disease.
