Glaucoma is a group of optic neuropathies characterized by retinal ganglion cell death, irreversible optic nerve damage, and vision loss. The treatment of glaucoma consists of reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) to a target level that is presumed to prevent further optic nerve deterioration. This presumption of clinical stability should be reevaluated at each clinical encounter with the patient and a new lower target IOP level estimated if progression has occurred.
