    About glaucoma

    Back to the top

    Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes progressive damage to your optic nerve. This damage is usually the result of an abnormal amount of pressure inside of your eye and over time it can lead to vision loss or even blindness.

    Open-Angle Glaucoma The most common kind of glaucoma is open-angle glaucoma. The only symptom associated with open-angle glaucoma is vision loss. Usually beginning with the peripheral, or side, vision. However, if it is caught early enough you may be able to prevent additional vision loss. This is why you must get yearly comprehensive eye examinations by an ophthalmologist, or eye specialist, to monitor any changes to your vision.

    Angle-Closure Glaucoma Acute -angle- closure glaucoma (sometimes referred to as narrow-angle glaucoma) is a medical emergency and requires immediate treatment. You can spot this by the following symptoms:

    • Severe eye pain
    • Nausea and/or vomiting
    • Red eyes
    • Sudden blurred vision or other disturbances to your vision
    • Seeing halos around light
