You’ve probably seen a commercial for chronic dry eyes at least once in your life and if you remember Bill Stein from the 1990’s you’ll know exactly what we mean. While his eye drop commercials were quite humorous, anyone living with chronic dry eyes knows the opposite is true.
Glaucoma is an eye disorder that commonly arises when pressure inside the eye is above normal (ocular hypertension) and the optic nerve is damaged. The optic nerve is a very important part of your eye, because it is what your body uses to “tell” your brain what you’re seeing. If your optic nerve is compromised, you could lose your peripheral vision and even go blind.
