Signs And Symptoms

Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma  
Glaucoma is a chronic degenerative disease which means that it occurs slowly and the condition usually worsens over time. Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma is often asymptomatic, which means that it develops without any signs and symptoms. A person usually discovers that he has developed Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma in the late stages whereby there is already significant loss in vision, which is irreversible. Hence we recommend people above the age of 45 and people with a family history of glaucoma to go for annual eye check-ups to examine the health of one’s optic nerves.
Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma
However, for Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma, there could be detectable signs and symptoms. Listed below are some of them.
  • Sudden and sharp pain in the eyes
  • Redness of the eyes
  • Seeing “halos” around lights
  • Very high intraocular pressure
  • Nausea
  • Vomitting
  • Blurry vision
  • Fixed, mid-dilated pupil
If one experiences such signs and symptoms, one should consult a doctor immediately. It is considered a medical emergency and if left untreated, it could lead to permanent blindness.
