Glaucoma is an eye condition which the pressure of the eye increases due to optic nerve damage. Symptoms include blurry vision, nausea, headaches, and even vision loss. Treatments include eye drops, medication, and surgery. The condition usually can be seen in elderly people, but symptoms in younger people are increasing. The exact cause is still unknown.


We wish Kim Yong Jin a speedy recovery.
