On the second annual World Glaucoma Day (March 12), leading global glaucoma experts are working together to help educate patients diagnosed with glaucoma and those who may be at risk for the condition. Glaucoma is a worldwide epidemiological challenge affecting approximately four percent of the global population, with an estimated 50 percent of glaucoma cases remaining undiagnosed. Research shows that by 2010, an estimated 60.5 million people globally will be living with either angle closure glaucoma (ACG) or primary open angle glaucoma (POAG).
During World Glaucoma Day, experts across the globe are encouraging patients, those individuals potentially at risk for glaucoma, and eye health professionals to utilize resources from sources like the All Eyes on Glaucoma(tm) campaign to recognize and understand the devastating consequences of glaucoma - the world's second leading cause of blindness. The All Eyes on Glaucoma program seeks to help raise awareness globally on World Glaucoma Day and throughout the year. World Glaucoma Day is a joint initiative by the World Glaucoma Association (WGA) and World Glaucoma Patient Association (WGPA).
"World Glaucoma Day offers an opportunity to educate patients with glaucoma and those at risk for the disease by raising awareness and providing helpful tips about the importance of early diagnosis and appropriate treatment," said Dr. Remo Susanna, President of the WGA, President of the Latin America Glaucoma Society and President of the Pan American Glaucoma Society.
The All Eyes on Glaucoma campaign also seeks to increase public awareness of risk factors for glaucoma; reinforce the critical importance of having regular, complete eye examinations including assessment of the optic nerve; and emphasize the importance of appropriate treatment at all stages of the disease. One key component of the campaign is the interactive Web site, www.AllEyesOnGlaucoma****, which offers tools such as an "Am I at Risk" quiz and a "Conversation Starter" on important questions to ask an eye health professional. In recognition of World Glaucoma Day, leading glaucoma experts will share the "Five Tips" via an interactive video series on www.AllEyesOnGlaucoma****.

Glaucoma Crónico de Angulo Abierto. Es la forma mas frecuente de los glaucomas. Se presenta aproximadamente un caso por cada 200 individuos. Su incidencia aumenta con la edad. Generalmente es asintomático. La presión intraocular aumenta en forma lenta y progresiva. No es doloroso y el paciente puede no darse cuenta de su perdida de visión, sino hasta los estadios más
avanzados de la enfermedad. Comúnmente la visión central se afecta tardíamente, lo que afecta inicialmente es la visión periférica o campo visual. El aumento de la presión intraocular en este tipo de glaucoma se debe a que el nivel de los canales de drenaje en el interior del ojo hay una resistencia o disminución de la facilidad de salida del liquido conocido como humor acuoso y consecuentemente aumenta la presión intraocular.

Generally speaking we tout the potential of marijuana, advocating its medical advantages left, right, and center. We praise its benefits for pain reduction, epilepsy, nausea, autism, MS, anorexia, and countless other conditions – the list is positively exhaustive. And yet, we would not advocate for marijuana unequivocally. One case where we do not outright recommend marijuana’s medicinal properties is with glaucoma.
Glaucoma can be treated naturally. More and more people are turning to these holistic approaches.
