By Noah Webster.
An ocular disease, occurring in many forms, having as its primary characteristics an unstable or a sustained increase in the intraocular pressure which the eye cannot withstand without damage to its structure or impairment of its function. The consequences of the increased pressure may be manifested in a variety of symptoms, depending upon type and severity, such as excavation of the optic disk, hardness of the eyeball, corneal anesthesia, reduced visual acuity, seeing of colored halos around lights, disturbed dark adaptation, visual field defects, and headaches.

Amongst the older pathologists, this word was used synonymously with cataract. It is now ordinarily applied to opacity of the vitreous humour or of the tunica hyaloidea, which manifests itself by a grayish, or greenish spot, apparent through the pupil. The diagnosis is generally difficult; and the disease is almost always incurable.

A disease of the eye characterized by increased intraocular tension or hardness of the eyeball, associated in varying degree with dilatation and irregularity of the pupil, sluggish or immovable iris, haziness and anesthesia of the cornea, pressure on the anterior chamber, cupping of the optic disk, pulsation of the vessels and contraction of the visual field on the nasal side. If untreated the disease ends in blindness.
