What is borderline glau- coma and what should one do about it? Dear Rentier Glaucoma is the buildup of pressure inside the eye. The pressure buildup begins at the front of the eye. first. Take a look at your eye and its black pupil. The outer covering of the eye in front of the black pupil is a clear mem- brane called the cornea. This clear membrane is the same layer of tissue as the white of your eye, except the tissue spe- cializes here to let light in. Between this clear, tough outer shell and the attachment of the lens of the eye which is behind the dark pupil is double compartme'nted cham- ber. There is a little gland in- side the front o!

The way glaucoma is diag- osed literally is by measuring le pressure inside the eyeball, his is done by a little gadget iat is pressed down on the eye- all to measure its firmness, 'ou can think of this as a mod- ied pressure gauge that the jarage mechanic uses to tesl le pressure in the tires of the lutomobile. When glaucoma is pretty well- established, the pressure will e fairly high and a great deal higher than that found within he so-called normal range, rhere are some individuals who Long mountain Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Scott McCoy, age 10, of Enid, Okla- homa, for his question: Which is the world's longest mountain range Mountains, you would Ihink, belong on the continents where have a little elevation beyond can lift their lofty peaks vhat's considered normal, but, yet not as high as that seen in: a full-blown case ot glaucoma. These are the border-line cases. There isn't much you can do about glaucoma, except be sure to give yourself an opportunity to diagnosed early. When- ever the pressure becomes def- initely elevated and your doctor is satisfied that you have glau- coma, it's time to start getting treatment. Undue delay can contribute to early blindness. Doctors can do a lot to treat early cases of glaucoma if they have a chance lo see them soon enough. This problem usually doesn't occur until after age 40, because it is much more common after that age it is a good idea for everyone to have an eye exam- ination at least once a year and part of the examination should include a measurement of the pressure in the eyes.
