What Is Borderline Glaucoma?

What is borderline glaucoma?

Borderline glaucoma is the early stage of open angle glaucoma or narrow angle glaucoma, two diseases that damage the nerve that connects the eye to the brain causing permanent loss of vision or the inability to maintain healthy vision.

Open angle glaucoma, also called primary or chronic glaucoma, means that the angle where the iris meets the cornea is as wide and open as it should be.

Narrow angle glaucoma, also called angle-closure glaucoma or acute glaucoma, is a result of the angle between the iris and cornea closing.

Early detection and treatment are of great importance to maintain a heathy vision.

Promptly go to an emergency room or an eye doctor’s (ophthalmologist’s) office if you find some problems with your eyes.
