    Open angle glaucoma is the most common form of glaucoma. It caused by the slow clogging of the drainage canals that lead to the increasing of eye pressure. Besides, people with open angle glaucoma have a wide and open angle between the iris and cornea. And this develop slowly and is a lifelong condition. Besides, people usually not realized any symptoms of open angle glaucoma at the beginning.

    Open angle glaucoma is a form of glaucoma and it is the leading cause of blindness. Open angle glaucoma refers to the angle b etween the iris and the cornea is wide and open, which is also called chronic glaucoma. When you develop open angle glaucoma, you can hardly notice it because the symptoms and damage are unnoticeable apart from increasement of eye pressure and cloudy vision in the early time. If you have been diagnosed with open angle glaucoma, you should have it treated immediately.
