Symptoms of Glaucoma
At first open angle Glaucoma has not symptoms. It causes no pain. Vision stays normal. Without treatment people will slowly lose their peripheral vision. Over a period of time, straight ahead vision may also decrease until no vision remains.
If I have increased eye pressure does that mean that I have Glaucoma?
No. Not every person with increased pressure will develop Glaucoma. Whether you develop Glaucoma depends on the level of pressure your optic nerve can tolerate without being damaged. This level is different for each person. That's why not just the eye pressure but a comprehensive dilated eye examination is very important.
