    It depends. As we know, glaucoma is a serious eye problems that caused by damages in the nerve fibers of the retina and optic nerves. If you let it untreated, it is probably lead to permanent vision loss. And the consideration of disability depend on then extent of the glaucoma. For people who have already lost a significant amount of peripheral vision can apply for disability so that to get disability benefits.
