Causes of Glaucoma Related Medical Malpractice Suits

Glaucoma related Medical Malpractice SuitsMost medical malpractice suits for glaucoma are linked to the surgical care of glaucoma, care causing glaucoma (such as from utilizing steroids for blepharitis or from retained lens material after cataract surgery), or failure to recognize glaucoma progression.

Issues that have been identified with malpractice suits include perceived unavailability, discounting patient and/or family concerns, poor distribution of information, and lack of understanding the patient’s and/or family’s perspective.

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is conventionally caused when the fluids are not circulating opportunely within the ocular perceiver. The anomalous flow of aqueous humor, a liquid inside the ocular perceiver, can engender a buildup of pressure against the optic nerve.

If left untreated, this pressure can permanent damage the nerve and cut off transmission of images from the ocular perceiver to the brain. It can sometimes only take a few years for glaucoma to cause sempiternal optical incapacitation. It is still not kenned what engenders the blockage of the ocular perceiver as glaucoma is not a single disease, but an effect of many different ocular perceiver conditions.

Albeit a disruption of the flow of liquid within the ocular perceiver is most commonly associated with glaucoma, there are several other possible causes. Glaucoma can additionally be caused by injury, infection, inflammation, and the blockage of blood vessels.

Glaucoma is an issue within the ocular perceiver that causes a buildup of pressure, leading to sempiternal ocular damage. Albeit the designations of glaucoma may not emerge until later in your life, it is a hereditary condition, which requires vigilance and caution.

Types of Glaucoma

There are two main types of glaucoma: open-angle and angle-closure.

Open-angle or wide-angle, glaucoma is the most common type and involves fluids not flowing opportunely through the eye’s drainage network known as the trabecular meshwork.

Angle-closure or narrow-angle, glaucoma involves the angle between the iris and cornea being too narrow to sanction for adequate drainage of the eye’s fluids.
