The main cause of blindness other than cataracts is glaucoma, around more than 5 million or 13.5% of the total blindness in the world is caused by this disease. But, nowadays has developed a medical marijuana that is believed to cure glaucoma. But it still has to be guided by a doctor and marijuana should be obtained from a licensed manufacturer, for example just like the licensed producers Canada.
Understanding of Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a disease of the eye in the form of a decrease in the field of view caused by an increase in pressure on the eyeball, causing damage to the nerves of the eye and causing blindness. This increased pressure in the eyeball is caused by an imbalance between the production and disposal of fluid in the eyeball. So that it damages the delicate neural networks that are in the retina and behind the eyeball.
Symptoms of Glaucoma
Glaucoma is divided into open-angle glaucoma and closed-angle glaucoma. In patients with acute glaucoma, symptoms will be felt such as:
- Looks like a rainbow (hello).
- The view drops suddenly.
- A Headache.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- And if it lasts long without immediate treatment, then the vision will get worse.
