Glaucoma is an eye disease in which intraocular pressure is increased causing a compression on the eye walls and especially on the optic nerve.

Lasik surgery is used to surgically correct the refractive errors of the eyes. After a lasik surgery you will not need glasses or contact lenses. The three most common refractive errors are myopia, astigmatism and farsightedness.
