The buildup of internal eye pressure can damage the eye's optic nerve, which acts as the major transmitter of visual information to the brain. Intraocular pressure is referred to as #glaucoma and can eventually lead to vision loss if left untreated. #GlaucomaTreatment

Astigmatism refers to issues with the lens of the eye or the cornea that cause blurry vision. #LASIK, other #lasereyesurgery options, and corrective lenses can treat it.  #LaserVisionCorrection
