 (glou-kō′mə, glô-)
n.
Any of a group of eye diseases characterized by abnormally high intraocular fluid pressure, damage to the optic disk, and gradual loss of vision.

[Latin glaucōma, cataract, from Greek glaukōma, from glaukos, gray.]

glau·co′ma·tous (-kō′mə-təs) adj.

glaucoma

(ɡlɔːˈkəʊmə)
n

glau·co·ma

(glou-kō′mə, glô-kō′mə)
An eye disease in which the pressure of fluid inside the eyeball becomes abnormally high. The pressure can damage the optic nerve and lead to partial or complete loss of vision.
