INTRODUCTION
 World Glaucoma Day is observed on March 12 every year
across the world.
 This is an important day that seeks to raise awareness
about the group of eye diseases known as glaucoma.
 The day is part of a week of raising awareness about this
disease and ensuring that it is caught early.
 Early detection of glaucoma improves the chances of
stopping or at least slowing the disease down with
appropriate treatments.
 The blindness caused by glaucoma is irreversible, but if
caught early, the disease can be treated and people will
not have to endure the difficulties of blindness when it is
preventable.
THEME OF THE YEAR 2023
 The world is bright, save your sight
 This year the theme for World Glaucoma
Week 2023 is “The world is bright, save
your sight”.
HISTORY OF GLUCOMA DAY OBSERVED
 370 B.C.-Hippocrates Records Glaucoma
 Hippocrates notes a type of blindness in the
elderly and calls it ‘glaykoseis,’ the earliest
record of glaucoma
 1622-Richard Banister Identifies Cause
 British surgeon Banister identifies the link
between eye pressure and glaucoma.
CONTINUED
 1862-The Disease is Named
 Doctor Franciscus Donders identifies
intraocular pressure as causing the disease
and names it Glaukoma simplex.
 1875-Medical Treatment for Glaucoma
Develops
 Pilocarpine is discovered and used as part of
the treatment for glaucoma.
NORMAL ANATOMY OF EYE
DEFINITION
 Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness for people over 60 years
old. But blindness from glaucoma can often be prevented with early
treatment.
 Glaucoma
 People with glaucoma have optic nerve damage from fluid buildup in
their eye. Left untreated, this eye pressure can permanently affect
vision. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the
world. Treatments — including eyedrops, laser treatments and
surgeries — can slow down vision loss and save your sight.
MEANING OF GLUCOMA
 Glaucoma is a chronic, progressive eye disease
caused by damage to the optic nerve, which leads to
visual field loss. One of the major risk factors is eye
pressure. An abnormality in the eye's drainage system
can cause fluid to build up, leading to excessive
pressure that causes damage to the optic nerve.
WHO IS AT RISK FOR GLAUCOMA?
 Some people have a higher than normal risk of getting glaucoma. This includes
people who:
 are over age 40
 have family members with glaucoma
 are of African, Hispanic, or Asian heritage
 have high eye pressure
 are farsighted or nearsighted
 have had an eye injury
 use long-term steroid medications
 have corneas that are thin in the center
 have thinning of the optic nerve
 have diabetes, migraines, high blood pressure, poor blood circulation or other
health problems affecting the whole body
 Talk with an ophthalmologist about your risk for getting glaucoma. People with
more than one of these risk factors have an even higher risk of glaucoma.
STAGE OF GLUCOMA
CAUSE OF GLUCOMA
 Glaucoma can occur without any cause, but many factors can
affect it.
 The most important of these factors is intraocular eye pressure.
Your eyes produce a fluid called aqueous humor that nourishes
them.
 This liquid flows through your pupil to the front of your eye. In a
healthy eye, the fluid leaves through the drainage canals located
between your iris and cornea.
 With glaucoma, the resistance increases in your drainage canals.
The fluid has nowhere to go, so it builds up in your eye.
 This excess fluid puts pressure on your eye. Eventually, this
elevated eye pressure can damage your optic nerve and lead to
glaucoma.
CONTINUED
 People with diabetes are twice as likely to get
glaucoma. Other risk factors include:
 Family history of glaucoma.
 Farsightedness or hyperopia (for closed-angle
glaucoma).
 High blood pressure (hypertension and very low
blood pressure (hypotension)
 Long-term use of corticosteroids.
 Nearsightedness or myopia (for open-angle
glaucoma).
 Previous eye injury or surgery.
TYPE OF GLUCOMA
 There are two major types of glaucoma.
 Open-angle glaucoma
 This is the most common type of glaucoma.
It happens gradually, where the eye does not
drain fluid as well as it should (like a clogged
drain). As a result, eye pressure builds and
starts to damage the optic nerve. This type of
glaucoma is painless and causes no vision
changes at first.
CONTINUED
 Angle-closure glaucoma (also called
“closed-angle glaucoma” or “narrow-angle
glaucoma”)
 This type happens when someone’s iris is very
close to the drainage angle in their eye. The iris
can end up blocking the drainage angle. You
can think of it like a piece of paper sliding over a
sink drain. When the drainage angle gets
completely blocked, eye pressure rises very
quickly. This is called an acute attack. It is a
true eye emergency, and you should call your
ophthalmologist right away or you might go
blind.
SIGN/SYMPTOM
 Here are the signs of an acute angle-closure glaucoma
attack:
 Your vision is suddenly blurry
 You have severe eye pain
 You have a headache
 You feel sick to your stomach (nausea)
 You throw up (vomit)
 You see rainbow-colored rings or halos around lights
 Many people with angle-closure glaucoma develop it
slowly. This is called chronic angle-closure glaucoma.
There are no symptoms at first, so they don’t know they
have it until the damage is severe or they have an attack.

CONTINUED
 Closed-angle glaucoma has more severe
symptoms that tend to come on suddenly.
 With any type, you may experience:
 Eye pain or pressure.
 Headaches.
 Rainbow-colored halos around lights.
 Low vision, blurred vision, narrowed vision
(tunnel vision) or blind spots.
 Nausea and vomiting.
 Red eyes.
GLAUCOMA DIAGNOSIS
 History collection
 Physical examination
 The only sure way to diagnose glaucoma is with a complete eye
exam. A glaucoma screening that only checks eye pressure is not
enough to find glaucoma.
 During a glaucoma exam, your ophthalmologist will:
 measure your eye pressure
 inspect your eye's drainage angle
 examine your optic nerve for damage
 test your peripheral (side) vision
 take a picture or computer measurement of your optic nerve
 measure the thickness of your cornea
 It’s possible to have glaucoma and not know it. Regular eye
exams are important to catch glaucoma or other eye
problems. Eye exams can assess optic health and vision loss.
 To check for glaucoma, an eye doctor may do one or more of
these painless tests:
 Dilated eye exam to widen pupils and view your optic nerve
at the back of your eyes.
 Gonioscopy to examine the angle where your iris and cornea
meet.
 Optical coherence tomography (OCT) to look for changes
in your optic nerve that may indicate glaucoma.
 Ocular pressure test (tonometry) to measure eye pressure.
 Pachymetry to measure corneal thickness.
 Slit-lamp exam to examine the inside of your eye with a
special microscope called a slit lamp.
 Visual acuity test (eye charts) to check for vision loss.
 Visual field test (perimetry) to check for changes in
peripheral vision (your ability to see things off to the side).
CAN GLAUCOMA BE STOPPED?
 Glaucoma damage is permanent—it cannot
be reversed. But medicine and surgery help
to stop further damage.
 To treat glaucoma, your ophthalmologist may
use one or more of the following treatments.
MEDICATION MANAGEMENT
 Glaucoma is usually controlled with eyedrop medicine. Used every day, these
eye drops lower eye pressure. Some do this by reducing the amount of aqueous
fluid the eye makes. Others reduce pressure by helping fluid flow better through
the drainage angle.
 Glaucoma medications can help you keep your vision, but they may also
produce side effects. Some eye drops may cause:
 a stinging or itching sensation
 red eyes or red skin around the eyes
 changes in your pulse and heartbeat
 changes in your energy level
 changes in breathing (especially if you have asthma or breathing problems)
 dry mouth
 blurred vision
 eyelash growth
 changes in your eye color, the skin around your eyes or eyelid appearance
 All medications can have side effects
WORLD GLUCOMA DAY AWARENESS DAY 2023 (1).pptx
SURGICAL TREATMENT -LASER SURGERY
 There are two main types of laser surgery to treat
glaucoma. They help aqueous drain from the eye. These
procedures are usually done in the ophthalmologist’s
office or an outpatient surgery center.
 Trabeculoplasty. This surgery is for people who have
open-angle glaucoma and can be used instead of or in
addition to medications. The eye surgeon uses a laser to
make the drainage angle work better. That way fluid flows
out properly and eye pressure is reduced.
 Iridotomy. This is for people who have angle-closure
glaucoma. The ophthalmologist uses a laser to create a
tiny hole in the iris. This hole helps fluid flow to the
drainage angle.
OPERATING ROOM SURGERY
 Some glaucoma surgery is done in an operating room. It creates a
new drainage channel for the aqueous humor to leave the eye.
 Trabeculectomy. This is where your eye surgeon creates a tiny flap
in the sclera. They will also create a bubble (like a pocket) in
the conjunctiva called a filtration bleb. It is usually hidden under the
upper eyelid and cannot be seen. Aqueous humor will be able to
drain out of the eye through the flap and into the bleb. In the bleb,
the fluid is absorbed by tissue around your eye, lowering eye
pressure.

 Glaucoma drainage devices. Your ophthalmologist
may implant a tiny drainage tube in your
eye. The glaucoma drainage implant sends the fluid
to a collection area (called a reservoir). Your eye
surgeon creates this reservoir beneath the
conjunctiva. The fluid is then absorbed into nearby
blood vessels.
 Cataract surgery. For some people with narrow
angles, removing the eye's natural lens can lower eye
pressure. With narrow angles, the iris and the cornea
are too close together. This can cover (block) the
eye’s drainage channel. Removing the eye's lens with
cataract surgery creates more space for fluid to leave
the eye. This can lower eye pressure.
COMPLICATION
 Untreated glaucoma can lead to the faster
development of permanent vision loss or blindness.
 Treatments can slow down additional vision loss, but
they can’t restore lost vision.
 It’s important to see an eye doctor right away if you
have eye pain, severe headaches or vision problems.
 An estimated 1 in 10 people with glaucoma develop
some degree of visual impairment. Blindness is less
common and affects 5% of people with glaucoma.
HOW CAN I PREVENT GLAUCOMA?
 Early detection of glaucoma
through routine eye exams is the
best way to protect eye
health and prevent vision
loss. Glaucoma testing should
occur every:
 One to three years after age 35
for people at high risk.
 Two to four years before age 40.
 One to three years between
ages 40 and 54.
 One to two years between ages
55 to 64.
 Six months to 12 months after
age 65.

CONTINUED
PROGNOSIS
 Blindness is a rare complication for people with glaucoma, as
long as a provider detects it early. However, glaucoma is a
chronic and progressive condition that often causes some
degree of vision loss over time.
WORLD GLUCOMA DAY AWARENESS DAY 2023 (1).pptx
CAN GLAUCOMA BE CURED?
 No, there’s no cure for glaucoma. However, you
can manage symptoms and stop the disease
from getting worse.
You should call your healthcare provider if you
experience:
 Blurred or low vision.
 Halos, eye floaters or flashers.
 Sudden, severe eye pain or headaches.
 Sensitivity to light.
 Vision loss.

WORLD GLUCOMA DAY AWARENESS DAY 2023 (1).pptx

  • 1. WORLD GLUCOMA DAY 12 MARCH OF EVERY YEAR - AWARENESS DAY DR.ANJALATCHI MUTHUKUMARAN VICE PRINCIPAL ERA COLLEGE OF NURSING , ERA UNIVERSITY
  • 2. INTRODUCTION  World Glaucoma Day is observed on March 12 every year across the world.  This is an important day that seeks to raise awareness about the group of eye diseases known as glaucoma.  The day is part of a week of raising awareness about this disease and ensuring that it is caught early.  Early detection of glaucoma improves the chances of stopping or at least slowing the disease down with appropriate treatments.  The blindness caused by glaucoma is irreversible, but if caught early, the disease can be treated and people will not have to endure the difficulties of blindness when it is preventable.
  • 3. THEME OF THE YEAR 2023  The world is bright, save your sight  This year the theme for World Glaucoma Week 2023 is “The world is bright, save your sight”.
  • 4. HISTORY OF GLUCOMA DAY OBSERVED  370 B.C.-Hippocrates Records Glaucoma  Hippocrates notes a type of blindness in the elderly and calls it ‘glaykoseis,’ the earliest record of glaucoma  1622-Richard Banister Identifies Cause  British surgeon Banister identifies the link between eye pressure and glaucoma.
  • 5. CONTINUED  1862-The Disease is Named  Doctor Franciscus Donders identifies intraocular pressure as causing the disease and names it Glaukoma simplex.  1875-Medical Treatment for Glaucoma Develops  Pilocarpine is discovered and used as part of the treatment for glaucoma.
  • 7. DEFINITION  Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness for people over 60 years old. But blindness from glaucoma can often be prevented with early treatment.  Glaucoma  People with glaucoma have optic nerve damage from fluid buildup in their eye. Left untreated, this eye pressure can permanently affect vision. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world. Treatments — including eyedrops, laser treatments and surgeries — can slow down vision loss and save your sight.
  • 8. MEANING OF GLUCOMA  Glaucoma is a chronic, progressive eye disease caused by damage to the optic nerve, which leads to visual field loss. One of the major risk factors is eye pressure. An abnormality in the eye's drainage system can cause fluid to build up, leading to excessive pressure that causes damage to the optic nerve.
  • 9. WHO IS AT RISK FOR GLAUCOMA?  Some people have a higher than normal risk of getting glaucoma. This includes people who:  are over age 40  have family members with glaucoma  are of African, Hispanic, or Asian heritage  have high eye pressure  are farsighted or nearsighted  have had an eye injury  use long-term steroid medications  have corneas that are thin in the center  have thinning of the optic nerve  have diabetes, migraines, high blood pressure, poor blood circulation or other health problems affecting the whole body  Talk with an ophthalmologist about your risk for getting glaucoma. People with more than one of these risk factors have an even higher risk of glaucoma.
  • 11. CAUSE OF GLUCOMA  Glaucoma can occur without any cause, but many factors can affect it.  The most important of these factors is intraocular eye pressure. Your eyes produce a fluid called aqueous humor that nourishes them.  This liquid flows through your pupil to the front of your eye. In a healthy eye, the fluid leaves through the drainage canals located between your iris and cornea.  With glaucoma, the resistance increases in your drainage canals. The fluid has nowhere to go, so it builds up in your eye.  This excess fluid puts pressure on your eye. Eventually, this elevated eye pressure can damage your optic nerve and lead to glaucoma.
  • 12. CONTINUED  People with diabetes are twice as likely to get glaucoma. Other risk factors include:  Family history of glaucoma.  Farsightedness or hyperopia (for closed-angle glaucoma).  High blood pressure (hypertension and very low blood pressure (hypotension)  Long-term use of corticosteroids.  Nearsightedness or myopia (for open-angle glaucoma).  Previous eye injury or surgery.
  • 13. TYPE OF GLUCOMA  There are two major types of glaucoma.  Open-angle glaucoma  This is the most common type of glaucoma. It happens gradually, where the eye does not drain fluid as well as it should (like a clogged drain). As a result, eye pressure builds and starts to damage the optic nerve. This type of glaucoma is painless and causes no vision changes at first.
  • 14. CONTINUED  Angle-closure glaucoma (also called “closed-angle glaucoma” or “narrow-angle glaucoma”)  This type happens when someone’s iris is very close to the drainage angle in their eye. The iris can end up blocking the drainage angle. You can think of it like a piece of paper sliding over a sink drain. When the drainage angle gets completely blocked, eye pressure rises very quickly. This is called an acute attack. It is a true eye emergency, and you should call your ophthalmologist right away or you might go blind.
  • 15. SIGN/SYMPTOM  Here are the signs of an acute angle-closure glaucoma attack:  Your vision is suddenly blurry  You have severe eye pain  You have a headache  You feel sick to your stomach (nausea)  You throw up (vomit)  You see rainbow-colored rings or halos around lights  Many people with angle-closure glaucoma develop it slowly. This is called chronic angle-closure glaucoma. There are no symptoms at first, so they don’t know they have it until the damage is severe or they have an attack.
  • 17. CONTINUED  Closed-angle glaucoma has more severe symptoms that tend to come on suddenly.  With any type, you may experience:  Eye pain or pressure.  Headaches.  Rainbow-colored halos around lights.  Low vision, blurred vision, narrowed vision (tunnel vision) or blind spots.  Nausea and vomiting.  Red eyes.
  • 18. GLAUCOMA DIAGNOSIS  History collection  Physical examination  The only sure way to diagnose glaucoma is with a complete eye exam. A glaucoma screening that only checks eye pressure is not enough to find glaucoma.  During a glaucoma exam, your ophthalmologist will:  measure your eye pressure  inspect your eye's drainage angle  examine your optic nerve for damage  test your peripheral (side) vision  take a picture or computer measurement of your optic nerve  measure the thickness of your cornea
  • 19.  It’s possible to have glaucoma and not know it. Regular eye exams are important to catch glaucoma or other eye problems. Eye exams can assess optic health and vision loss.  To check for glaucoma, an eye doctor may do one or more of these painless tests:  Dilated eye exam to widen pupils and view your optic nerve at the back of your eyes.  Gonioscopy to examine the angle where your iris and cornea meet.  Optical coherence tomography (OCT) to look for changes in your optic nerve that may indicate glaucoma.  Ocular pressure test (tonometry) to measure eye pressure.  Pachymetry to measure corneal thickness.  Slit-lamp exam to examine the inside of your eye with a special microscope called a slit lamp.  Visual acuity test (eye charts) to check for vision loss.  Visual field test (perimetry) to check for changes in peripheral vision (your ability to see things off to the side).
  • 20. CAN GLAUCOMA BE STOPPED?  Glaucoma damage is permanent—it cannot be reversed. But medicine and surgery help to stop further damage.  To treat glaucoma, your ophthalmologist may use one or more of the following treatments.
  • 21. MEDICATION MANAGEMENT  Glaucoma is usually controlled with eyedrop medicine. Used every day, these eye drops lower eye pressure. Some do this by reducing the amount of aqueous fluid the eye makes. Others reduce pressure by helping fluid flow better through the drainage angle.  Glaucoma medications can help you keep your vision, but they may also produce side effects. Some eye drops may cause:  a stinging or itching sensation  red eyes or red skin around the eyes  changes in your pulse and heartbeat  changes in your energy level  changes in breathing (especially if you have asthma or breathing problems)  dry mouth  blurred vision  eyelash growth  changes in your eye color, the skin around your eyes or eyelid appearance  All medications can have side effects
  • 23. SURGICAL TREATMENT -LASER SURGERY  There are two main types of laser surgery to treat glaucoma. They help aqueous drain from the eye. These procedures are usually done in the ophthalmologist’s office or an outpatient surgery center.  Trabeculoplasty. This surgery is for people who have open-angle glaucoma and can be used instead of or in addition to medications. The eye surgeon uses a laser to make the drainage angle work better. That way fluid flows out properly and eye pressure is reduced.  Iridotomy. This is for people who have angle-closure glaucoma. The ophthalmologist uses a laser to create a tiny hole in the iris. This hole helps fluid flow to the drainage angle.
  • 24. OPERATING ROOM SURGERY  Some glaucoma surgery is done in an operating room. It creates a new drainage channel for the aqueous humor to leave the eye.  Trabeculectomy. This is where your eye surgeon creates a tiny flap in the sclera. They will also create a bubble (like a pocket) in the conjunctiva called a filtration bleb. It is usually hidden under the upper eyelid and cannot be seen. Aqueous humor will be able to drain out of the eye through the flap and into the bleb. In the bleb, the fluid is absorbed by tissue around your eye, lowering eye pressure. 
  • 25.  Glaucoma drainage devices. Your ophthalmologist may implant a tiny drainage tube in your eye. The glaucoma drainage implant sends the fluid to a collection area (called a reservoir). Your eye surgeon creates this reservoir beneath the conjunctiva. The fluid is then absorbed into nearby blood vessels.  Cataract surgery. For some people with narrow angles, removing the eye's natural lens can lower eye pressure. With narrow angles, the iris and the cornea are too close together. This can cover (block) the eye’s drainage channel. Removing the eye's lens with cataract surgery creates more space for fluid to leave the eye. This can lower eye pressure.
  • 26. COMPLICATION  Untreated glaucoma can lead to the faster development of permanent vision loss or blindness.  Treatments can slow down additional vision loss, but they can’t restore lost vision.  It’s important to see an eye doctor right away if you have eye pain, severe headaches or vision problems.  An estimated 1 in 10 people with glaucoma develop some degree of visual impairment. Blindness is less common and affects 5% of people with glaucoma.
  • 27. HOW CAN I PREVENT GLAUCOMA?  Early detection of glaucoma through routine eye exams is the best way to protect eye health and prevent vision loss. Glaucoma testing should occur every:  One to three years after age 35 for people at high risk.  Two to four years before age 40.  One to three years between ages 40 and 54.  One to two years between ages 55 to 64.  Six months to 12 months after age 65.
  • 30. PROGNOSIS  Blindness is a rare complication for people with glaucoma, as long as a provider detects it early. However, glaucoma is a chronic and progressive condition that often causes some degree of vision loss over time.
  • 32. CAN GLAUCOMA BE CURED?  No, there’s no cure for glaucoma. However, you can manage symptoms and stop the disease from getting worse. You should call your healthcare provider if you experience:  Blurred or low vision.  Halos, eye floaters or flashers.  Sudden, severe eye pain or headaches.  Sensitivity to light.  Vision loss.
