A holistic approach to treating vision-threatening glaucoma

This video is meant to expand your general knowledge about living a healthy life and is NOT a substitute for seeking medical advice. Please consult with your doctor before making changes in your health practices, diet and self-care.

In this video, eye surgeon Dr. David Richardson discusses why a holistic approach to glaucoma is essential and why intraocular pressure itself is only one of the components of glaucoma.

Glaucoma is a common eye condition where the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain, becomes damaged. It’s usually caused by fluid building up in the front part of the eye, which increases pressure inside the eye. The condition can lead to loss of vision if it’s not diagnosed and treated early.

In the treatment of glaucoma, explains Dr. Richardson, it is important to focus also on other issues that are involved in glaucoma, besides just the build-up of pressure.
