animal-portrait-234836_1280Glaucoma is a condition when the pressure builds inside the eye because there is too much fluid in the eye. This occurs because the eye can’t drain the fluid out properly. It is really important to catch glaucoma early because it can cause damage to the optic nerve, causing blindness.

Various medications can be used to help your pet through this painful disease, though the eye may need to be removed if left untreated or caught too late.
