    Yes, it is a bad eye disease which will affect your daily common life. The high eye pressure is the main cause of this eye disease. You need to use the medical care to treat the eyes. If you do not treat it well, you may get other serious eye problems. You should take great notice in your work. You should not sit in front of the computers for a long time which may affect your eye sight. You should cut the working time and have the good rest for the eyes.

    I am sorry to hear that. A group of eye diseases containing blurred vision, watering eyes, headaches or loss of vision are closely connected to glaucoma because of the damages of the optic nerves. Once you are diagnosed, you may loss your vision slowly and on the progression of blindness. As it can not be detected at its initial stage, and when the obvious symptoms occur, it is too late to be cured. The only things you can do to keep the quality of your life is to use some eye drops constantly and create some things like large-printed items to fight for the glaucoma. As the loss of the vision, you have to rest your eyes, but sometimes, the psychological effects can work, I mean, you can try to join the group of people with the same experiences to seek support.

    Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged in a characteristic pattern. Gaucoma is really a serious eye problem, which will cause permanent loss of vision. If there is no any option which to be taken to heal it, total permanent blindness within a few years will occur. Commonly signs of glaucoma are redness, apin and burning in eyes, vision loss, nausea or vomiting and seeing halos around lights. Glaucoma can affect one's life indeed, but not forever. You also can work in daily life under the instruction of doctor.
