How Do You Know if You Have Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a progressive eye condition that can lead to irreversible vision loss. Understanding its subtle warning signs and risk factors is key for early detection and effective management. 

Regular comprehensive eye exams play a pivotal role in identifying glaucoma, as its symptoms are often undetectable in the early stages.

Our glaucoma specialists can help identify and manage a range of glaucoma types. All you have to do is request an appointment with us today, and we can help with the rest.

How Glaucoma Affects Vision

Glaucoma often doesn’t show signs in the early stages. When symptoms do appear, it can impact vision in various ways, including:

  • Peripheral vision loss
  • Tunnel vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Severe eye pain

We offer comprehensive glaucoma exams to help identify signs of glaucoma before vision loss occurs, including a no-puff tonometry test, which many patients consider more comfortable compared to traditional tonometry.

Common Types of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that can damage the optic nerve, typically due to an increase in intraocular pressure (fluid pressure inside the eye). 

This pressure buildup can happen due to a blockage in the eye’s drainage system, causing fluid to accumulate and resulting in gradual optic nerve damage, which can eventually lead to vision impairment or loss.

Open-Angle Glaucoma

Open-angle glaucoma is the most common type. It occurs when the eye’s drainage canals become clogged over time, leading to increased eye pressure and gradual vision loss without noticeable symptoms in the early stages.

Angle-closure glaucoma happens when the angle between the iris and cornea closes, causing a sudden increase in eye pressure. This can lead to severe symptoms like eye pain, nausea, and blurred vision and requires immediate medical attention.

Normal-tension glaucoma happens when optic nerve damage occurs despite normal eye pressure. This is possibly due to sensitive optic nerves or reduced blood flow, leading to gradual vision loss. Regular eye checkups are important for the detection of this type.
