Among the most dangerous eye diseases are glaucoma and cataracts. Glaucoma is a condition whereby the optic nerve is damaged by continuous pressure inside the eye (intraocular pressure). Failure to stabilize this pressure in time can result in permanent loss of sight. According to WebMD, glaucoma is very often inherited. It can also develop as a result of injury, a serious eye infection or due to problems with the circulation of blood and optical fluids in and around the eye.
A cataract is the clouding over of the lens of the eye, which results in gradual vision loss. This disease accounts for 50% of all cases of blindness. Recently, new cataract treatments have been introduced, which can significantly decrease the percentage of blindness due to cataracts. In the USA, only 5% of cataract cases result in blindness, while in South America and Africa this figure reaches 60%. This can be explained by better access to medical treatment in the USA and the availability of better treatment options. Cataracts usually develop due to age and are common in people over 65 years old. However, medical conditions such as diabetes, previous eye trauma or surgery can also lead to cataracts.
Glaucoma can lead to cataracts and vice versa. For example, a person who has undergone glaucoma surgery may later develop cataracts; a person who has cataracts may later suffer from glaucoma.
