    Signs and Symptoms of Glaucoma

    17 August, 2023

    Usually, the common signs of Glaucoma are self-described by the patient, such as pain, tenderness, pain, etc., while signs feature others may notice, such as redness or swelling.

    Signs and Symptoms of Glaucoma

    Signs and symptoms of primary open-angle and acute angle-closure Glaucoma are different.

    1. Primary Open Angle Glaucoma

    The peripheral vision gradually narrows, in most cases, both eyes.

    In the late stages of the disease, patients often have a tubular field of vision.

    2. Angle-closure Glaucoma

    • Eye pain, often severe pain.
    • The vision is blurred.
    • Eye pain is often accompanied by nausea and sometimes vomiting.
    • A halo of light appears.
    • Red eyes.
    • Sudden loss of vision, especially in low light.

    3. Factors associated with Glaucoma

    Old age

    People over the age of 60 are at high risk of getting sick. For African-Americans, the risk increases in the younger generation.

    Racial factor

    People in East Asia have a shallower anterior chamber depth, so the risk of having this disease is higher than Caucasians. African-Americans are three to four times more likely to get the disease than white Americans.

    Sex

    Women are three times more likely to develop Glaucoma than men.

    Other diseases

    People with diabetes or hypothyroidism are more susceptible to Glaucoma.

    Eye injury

    Specific eye injuries, severe ones, are associated with a higher risk of this condition. Retinal detachment, eye infections, and tumors can also be the cause.

    Eye surgery

    Some patients who undergo eye surgery are at risk for Glaucoma.

    Short-sighted

    People with myopia are also prone to this kind of eye disease.

    Corticosteroids

    Patients taking long-term corticosteroids are at increased risk for complications, including Glaucoma. Some cases of eye drops containing corticosteroids are also at risk of disease.
