•Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged in a characteristic pattern.
•This can permanently damage vision in the affected eye(s) and lead to blindness if left untreated.
•It is normally associated with increased fluid pressure in the eye (aqueous humour).
Pathophysiology and Etiology of Glaucoma
•Of the several causes for glaucoma, ocular hypertension (increased pressure within the eye) is the most important cause in most glaucomas, but in some populations, only 50% of people actually have elevated ocular pressure.
•Intra-ocular pressure rises when there is an imbalance between production and drainage of aqueous humour in the eye.
•Family history of glaucoma
•Thinner central corneal thickness
•Raised intra-ocular pressure is an important risk factor for glaucoma
Classification of glaucoma
Glaucoma is classified as open-angle or angle-closure depending on the mechanism of the obstruction of drainage.

Arsenal are at it again.
Not content with being the only club in the history of football to charge high prices to away fans, they have now become the first to restrict the numbers of away fans at an FA Cup tie.
They should be ashamed of themselves.
Of course, the above is not strictly true, plenty of clubs charge ridiculously high prices to away fans, often for restricted views, and many clubs have, on the advice of safety experts, limited the number of away fans at games.

As it was announced yesterday that Arsenal would be only offering a reduced allocation to Liverpool for the FA Cup tie next weekend, fans groups went in to overdrive…

Say no to alcoholism.
This picture of a dying young mother of four shows the true damage of chronic alcohol abuse.
Beverley Pickorer regularly has epileptic seizures and is bed-bound. Her jaundiced skin is paper thin and her teeth are rotting.
The 35-year-old developed liver disease after a decade of alcoholism. At her worst, she drank 24 cans of lager and a bottle of pear cider in the morning, carried on drinking in a nearby pub and had another 16 cans of lager when she went home.
Her four children, aged between six and 15, have been taken into care while she faces certain death.
Her partner, Anthony Howard, said: ‘I’ve been looking after her for five-and-a-half years and she’s constantly been in and out of hospital with liver cirrhosis.
‘She’s the youngest person in this care home. All she can do every day is stay in bed.’
A series of troubled relationships caused…
