Spotting the Early Signs of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that affect the optic nerve. Glaucoma can cause permanent vision loss if not detected early on. At Eye See in Lincolnshire, we help patients catch glaucoma early before the condition worsens. Our eye doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam to look for glaucoma. We also help patients understand the warning signs of glaucoma to spot the condition in its early stages.

Loss of Vision

If you have open-angle glaucoma, you may experience some patches of blindness in your vision. This could occur in your peripheral vision or your central vision. Patients can experience vision loss in one or both eyes. Severe cases of glaucoma can cause tunnel vision. Loss of vision is often the only sign of open-angle glaucoma.

Headaches

One of the early signs of acute angle-closure glaucoma is severe headaches. Not only will your head hurt, but you may also notice pain in and around your eyes. You may feel a lot of pressure in your head or around your eyes suddenly.

Blurred Vision

Patients with acute angle-closure glaucoma often experience blurred vision and see halos around lights. Unfortunately, we often see patients mistaken this symptom for a problem with their glasses or contacts. If you are experiencing blurry vision, our optometrist can thoroughly examine your eyes to diagnose the cause of your condition. 

Nausea and Vomiting

Patients can experience nausea and vomiting accompanied by severe eye pain. If you are experiencing nausea, vomiting, and other glaucoma symptoms, you need to visit our eye doctor for a proper diagnosis.
