Glaucoma is a serious eye condition that affects the optic nerve of the eyes. The change that occurs in the optic nerve due to glaucoma usually can be slow and gradual over many years. This can cause blindness in the later stages of the disease such as tunnel vision or central blur, which is irreversible. In order to better detect glaucoma in its early stage, it is necessary to analyze the function and appearance of the optic nerve over time. This is important in order to initiate glaucoma medications as indicated as early as possible and save vision before vision is lost.
