In glaucoma, the nerve of the eye which is connected to the brain gradually impairs vision and the pressure of the eyes increase. Due to this ailment, the patients suffer severe pain in the eye and radishness in the eyes. In case of such symptoms, the patient should get his/her eyes examined and treated by a glaucoma specialist without wasting time. Diabetic patients should get their eyes checked regularly after a certain interval. People who already have a history of glaucoma in their family need to be more careful.
