Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve. The optic nerve sends visual information from your eye to your brain and is vital for good vision. Damage to the optic nerve is often related to high pressure in your eye. But glaucoma can happen even with normal eye pressure. You’re considered at high risk if at least one of these conditions applies to you:

  • You have diabetes
  • You have a family history of glaucoma
  • You’re African American and age 50 or older
  • You’re Hispanic and age 65 or older

Symptoms may include:

  • Gradually, patchy blind spots in your side vision. Side vision also is known as peripheral vision
  • Blurred vision
