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.
