the signs of glaucoma. Below are examples of what normal vision looks like compared to moderate to severe glaucoma.
Acute Angle-Closure Glaucoma: Unlike with other types of glaucoma, those with angle-closure glaucoma will show symptoms of glaucoma. These glaucoma symptoms may include eye pain, halos around lights, distorted vision, nausea or headaches. Patients may experience a combination of these glaucoma symptoms.
It is estimated that half of the population with glaucoma eye disease does not realize they have the disease. Glaucoma develops gradually over numerous years and presents different warning signs as the disease progresses. If glaucoma is not detected and treated early, it can lead to blindness. This is why it is known as the "sneak thief of sight".
There are numerous tools available to the eye care professional to detect glaucoma. Glaucoma management is usually a lifelong process that requires frequent monitoring and constant treatment. Since there is no way to determine if glaucoma is under control based on how a person feels, doctor visits should be on a regular basis.
