Quick Overview
Glaucoma is a type of disease that causes an irreversible blindness, if it is left undetected or untreated. Moreover there is no cure for glaucoma and regular medication is the only way to prevent blindness. In fact this is one of the main issues in the treatment of glaucoma, regularity in taking a proper medication course. Most people are not able to take the complete medication and the rate of medication regimen non-compliance is very high.
