Ocular Hypertension Topic Guide
Ocular Hypertension: The term ocular hypertension usually refers to any situation in which the pressure inside the eye, called intraocular pressure, is higher than normal. Typically, those with ocular hypertension have any symptoms or signs. Treatment typically involves medicated eyedrops to help lower intraocular pressure.
Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma Glaucoma describes chronic high pressure within the eyeball. The pressure eventually causes nerve damage, though glaucoma can still occur without elevated pressure. Primary open-angle glaucoma is a subtype of the disease characterized by atrophy of the optic disc in the back oif the eye and other problems.
