Glaucoma is an eye disease in which pressure inside the eye increases. In Hindi it is called “Kala Pani” which is a misnomer as some people think that it is watering of eye. The high eye pressure causes damage to Optic Nerve Fibers which carry light signals from retina to brain, where it is perceived and we visualize an object. This Damage to Optic Nerve is irreversible thus leading to permanent blindness.
