What Is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a set of conditions that damage your optic nerve. This nerve transmits optical signals to your brain. The condition is often associated with increased pressure inside the eye, known as intraocular pressure (IOP). Damage to the optic nerve will lead to gradual vision loss, starting with peripheral vision.

What are some Glaucoma Symptoms?

The symptoms of glaucoma are numerous, but can be similar to other eye conditions, so a comprehensive eye examination is recommended to diagnose the correct eye condition.

Glaucoma symptoms include:

  • Loss of peripheral vision.
  • Tunnel vision.
  • Blurred vision or halos around lights.
  • Eye pain or discomfort.
  • Redness in the eyes
  • Headaches.

Often symptoms don’t appear until glaucoma is well underway, so we recommend regular eye testing.

How To Test For Glaucoma

We can give you a comprehensive eye examination to determine if you have glaucoma. We thoroughly test all aspects of your eye and vision, including a check of your IOP, which is specific to glaucoma diagnosis.

We even check your family and medical history to see if you are predetermined towards glaucoma or any other condition with your eyes.

You can find out more on our Eye Examination page.

Can Glaucoma Be Cured?

Currently, there is no known cure for glaucoma. Early detection and appropriate treatment can help slow down the progression of the disease, preserve remaining vision, and prevent further damage. Treatment options include eye drops, medications, laser therapy, and surgery to manage intraocular pressure (IOP) and preserve vision.
