What is neuro viscular Glocoma?

Hello there

the proper term is neovascular glaucoma. This is a certain type of glaucoma that arises when there has been poor circulation in the eye and new blood vessels are formed which physically block drainage canals in the eyeball causing a rise in eye pressure. In short, this is a more severe form of glaucoma that often needs surgery or lasers to salvage any vision in the eyeball. I hope this helps, if you need any more info or clarification, please do not hesitate to reply, Regards XXXXX XXXXX
