NOTE about Glaucoma

In the early stages, Glaucoma has no symptoms. It does not cause pain and the patient’s vision is still normal. Normally, patients can only detect the disease when they experience some serious symptoms such as obvious vision loss, severe headaches, nausea, etc. Due to the damage caused by Glaucoma, it cannot be recovered. The longer you have the disease, the more serious the damage to your eyesight will be.
