The optic nerve, which is essential for clear vision, is damaged by a group of eye conditions known as glaucoma, and this damage is frequently brought on by an abnormally high pressure in your eye.

Any age can experience it, but older adults are more likely to do so.

Since the effects of the most prevalent type of glaucoma are so gradual, you might not notice a change in your vision until the disease is far along.

It’s crucial to have routine eye exams that include measurements of your eye pressure because glaucoma cannot be reversed once it has already caused vision loss.

Types–The following list represents the various forms of glaucoma:

Open-angle glaucoma

The most prevalent type of glaucoma is known as open-angle glaucoma, which is characterized by the drainage angle between the cornea and iris remaining open but a partial obstruction of the trabecular meshwork, which leads to a gradual rise in intraocular pressure that damages the optic nerve before symptoms are even noticeable.

Angle-closure glaucoma

Angle-closure glaucoma, also known as closed-angle glaucoma, is a type of glaucoma that develops when the iris protrudes forward and narrows or blocks the drainage angle between the cornea and the iris, preventing fluid from draining from the eye and increasing pressure.

Acute angle glaucoma, a medical emergency that can be brought on by sudden pupillary dilation, is a type of angle-closure glaucoma that can develop suddenly or gradually.

Normal-tension glaucoma

You may have a sensitive optic nerve, or you may have less blood being supplied to your optic nerve, which could be caused by atherosclerosis — the buildup of fatty deposits (plaques) in the arteries — or other conditions that impair circulation. No one knows the exact reason why your optic nerve becomes damaged in normal-tension glaucoma, but you may have a sensitive optic nerve, or you may have less blood being supplied to your optic nerve.

Glaucoma in children

Glaucoma may develop in the first few years of life or may be present at birth in infants and children. The optic nerve damage may be brought on by drainage blockages or an underlying medical condition.

Pigmentary glaucoma

Activities like jogging occasionally stir up the pigment granules, depositing them on the trabecular meshwork and resulting in intermittent pressure elevations. Pigmentary glaucoma is characterized by the accumulation of pigment granules from your iris in the drainage channels, slowing or obstructing fluid exiting your eye.

**Causes–**Glaucoma is caused by injury to the optic nerve, which gradually deteriorates, leaving blind spots in your field of vision. For reasons that doctors don’t fully understand, this nerve damage is frequently connected to elevated pressure in the eye.

When fluid is overproduced or the drainage system isn’t functioning properly, the fluid can’t flow out at its normal rate and pressure builds up. Aqueous humor, a fluid that flows throughout your eye, normally drains into the front of the eye (anterior chamber) through tissue (trabecular meshwork).

Scientists have discovered genes in some people that are connected to high eye pressure and optic nerve damage, and glaucoma tends to run in families.

Depending on the type and stage of your condition, your glaucoma may present with a variety of symptoms, such as:

Patchy blind spots in the center or on either side of your vision, often in both eyes, are symptoms of open-angle glaucoma. In its advanced stages, tunnel vision is also a symptom.

Severe headache, eye pain, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, haloes around lights, and red eyes are all symptoms of acute angle-closure glaucoma.

Even with treatment, about 15% of glaucoma sufferers develop at least one eye blindness within 20 years, with glaucoma eventually leading to blindness.


PHOSPHORUS 200The main symptom guiding the use of this homeopathic remedy is tiredness of eyes all the time. The eyes seem very tired even when they are not engaged in much work. The eyes seem to be exhausted. In addition to the fatigue of eyes, the vision is blurred and the patient feels that every object is covered in dust when he or she looks at it. Halophyte is one of the top remedies for Glaucoma. It is also indicated for Glaucoma when the optic nerve is damaged (atrophied

COMOCLADIA 30Comocladia is one of the homeopathic treatments for glaucoma with pain that is recommended for patients who feel as though their eyes are very enlarged, filled with pain, and whose pain is made worse by heat. In these cases, being outside brings relief from both the pain and the fullness of their eyes.

BELLADONNA 200Belladonna is the best treatment for glaucoma patients experiencing acute symptoms, which include sudden worsening of vision, reddening of the eyes, severe pain in the head and eyes, as well as possible nausea and vomiting.

OSMIUM 30The important symptom listed by the patient is the display of various changeable colors of an object when looked at from different angles like a rainbow (iridescent vision), as well as intolerance to light. -Osmium is of great help in improving dim vision. The intraocular pressure is raised in persons needing Osmium.

PHYSOSTIGMA 30In addition to dim vision, the patient may also experience eye pain, which is typically worse after using the eyes. This homeopathic medicine is also effective for treating glaucoma patients who have myopia.

SPIGELIA 30-On the left side, a severe headache that is worse at night and during motion has sharp, stabbing pains that go through the eye and head.

COLOCYNTHIS 200Colocynthis is regarded as a good palliative for glaucoma because it relieves the pain that occurs in the eyeballs before the onset of the disease and the sensation that the eyeballs are about to fall out.

PRUNUS SPINOSA 30Prunus Spinosa, which is primarily effective for right eye pain, is the best homeopathic treatment for sudden pain in the right eye caused by glaucoma. This type of pain is so severe and violent that it causes the eyeball to feel as though it is about to burst.

CEDRON 30Cedron is the best treatment for severe, violent pain in the eye, especially the left eye. The onset of pain may show some periodicity in its occurrence, and the pain may radiate to the nose. In contrast to Prunus Spinosa, Cedron’s action is focused on the left eye of a glaucoma patient.

GELSEMIUM 200-Glaucoma symptoms include dilated pupils, disturbed accommodation, and eye pain, either with or without lachrymation. Gelsemium is a very effective treatment for glaucoma.

CONIUM MAC 200– Feeling of pressure when reading, writing, or performing other fine work

ESERINUM 6XThere is dilated pupillation and hardening of the eyeballs, and it is thought to be a good treatment for glaucoma.
