In brief: Untreated glaucoma

Glaucoma can cause blindness, but it's typically a long, slow process over years of time.
In general, the higher the eye pressure, the faster the glaucoma progression. Since it's irreversible, it's best to identify it early, and then blindness often can be prevented.

In brief: If not treated

Non treated galucoma will cause damage to the eye nerve and may cause blindness, it is very important to treat the condition and lowe the pressure inside the affected eye.
