Glaucoma is an eye disease that is often associated with elevated intraocular pressure, in which damage to the eye (optic) nerve can lead to loss of vision and even blindness.

Therefore regular intraocular pressure (IOP) evaluation is important. If one is affected, prevention of the contralateral eye is important. Proper medical treatment may delay the onset of glaucoma in the contralateral eye.

High IOP is painful, it can result in decreased activity, less desire to play, irritability, and/or decreased appetite. Squinting, lacrimation, conjunctival hyperemia, corneal edema can be seen. Early diagnosis and treatment is important to maintain vision.
