Internal eye pressure, either high or low, alone does not indicate glaucoma. The glaucomatous eye can also exhibit normal intraocular pressure. Hence, the syndrome characterized by progressive, uniquely patterned optic neuropathy is called Glaucoma. This is associated with corresponding visual field loss as well as contrast loss with or without sustained high eye pressure.
