General information on Glaucoma

Glaucoma develops when there is an increase in fluid pressure in the eyeball. Arterial blood pressure cannot enter and supply the eye when the eye pressure itself is greater than the arterial pressure. Glaucoma is one the principal causes of blindness in cats.

Symptoms of Glaucoma

Symptoms of Glaucoma may include an eye or eyes that water, “bloodshot”-looking eye, sensitivity to light and squinting. If the disease progresses the cat may be in noticeable pain and the eyeball may look swollen.

Treatments for Glaucoma

Treatment for Glaucoma includes decreasing the pressure in the affected eye. Topical and oral medications may be used to reduce pressure. In some cases, when topical and oral treatments fail and the potential for vision still exits, surgery may be indicated to reduce the pressure.
