Papilledema

Increased Pressure on the Optic Nerve

Papilledema refers to an eye condition where your brain has increased intracranial pressure that places pressure on the optic nerve causing it to swell. It is a serious condition and can lead to permanent damage. People suffering from papilledema experience transient episodes of visual disturbances, headache, nausea, vomiting, or tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
