What is Glaucoma?
This is usually caused by raised pressure within the eye, and is associated with  a loss in your visual field. It is usually treated with eyedrops, but occasionally, surgical treatment is required.
What is Conjunctivitis?
This is an infection of the front of the eye. There are different types, and each requires different treatment. You may get a discharge from your eyes, but not always.
