What is a stress test?

What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a progressive and irreversible damage of the optic nerve (and ultimately your vision). In the early stages, there are usually no symptoms. Symptoms usually appear at the final stages when it is too late. Damages due to glaucoma cannot be reversed and it is therefore important to detect it early by regular routine examination. Early treatment may arrest progression of the disease and preserve useful vision.
