The main things to know about Glaucoma is that it is high pressure inside the eyeball and until it’s really done damage there are no symptoms the patient can feel, like high blood pressure.  Eye drops are commonly prescribed and there is a low compliance rate among those prescribed eye drops for their Glaucoma.  The main objective for you as their nurse is to teach about the importance of taking their medications for their Glaucoma as blindness can occur if not treated.
