Understanding open-angle glaucoma
The most common form of glaucoma is primary open-angle
glaucoma (POAG). POAG is commonly caused by increased
eye pressure due to a buildup of fluid in the eye.
Your eye is constantly producing fluid inside of itself called aqueous fluid. However, if too much fluid is produced or if the fluid is not draining properly, it can lead to increased pressure inside the eye. Speak to your doctor for more information on the potential effects of increased pressure in the eyes.
