Primary Open Angle Glaucoma

What is Primary Open Angle Glaucoma?

Primary open-angle glaucoma is the most common form of glaucoma in America and Europe. This occurs when no particular reason for blockage of the drainage angle can be found. There are often no symptoms of this “silent” thief of sight. The risk factors for developing open-angle glaucoma are:

  • Advanced age
  • Family history of glaucoma
  • Elevated intraocular pressure
  • Highly pigmented skin
  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Systemic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease

Regular eye exams can help identify initial signs of glaucoma so early treatment can be administered. Contact us at 1 (843) 664-9393 today to schedule a glaucoma eye exam.
