No. ARMD is age related macular degeneration. Glaucoma is an increase in pressure inside the eye and can be found in people of all ages. Glaucoma causes defects in the visual field and can lead to blindness. Age related macular degeneration is found usually in older people. The macular retina degenerates with the aging process.
Hope this helps.
