Business DescriptionThe Glaucoma Surgery delivers quality and modern surgical excellence. Symptoms and Signs of Glaucoma are the following:
Patients with open-angle glaucoma and chronic angle-closure glaucoma, in general, have no symptoms early in the course of the disease. Visual field loss (side vision loss) is not a symptom until late in the disease course. Rarely patients with fluctuating intraocular pressure levels may have haziness of vision and see halos around lights, especially in the morning.
On the other hand, acute angle-closure symptoms are often extremely dramatic, with the rapid onset of severe eye pain, headache, nausea and vomiting, and visual blurring. Occasionally, nausea and vomiting exceed the ocular symptoms to the extent that an ocular cause is not considered when attempting to diagnose.
The eyes of patients with open-angle glaucoma or chronic angle-closure glaucoma may appear normal in the mirror or to family or friends. Some patients get slightly red eyes from the regular use of eye drops. On examining the patient, the ophthalmologist may find elevated intraocular pressure, optic nerve abnormalities, or visual field loss in addition to other less common signs.
The eyes of patients with acute angle-closure glaucoma will appear red, and the pupil of the eye may be large and nonreactive to light. The cornea may appear cloudy to the naked eye. The ophthalmologist will typically find decreased visual acuity, corneal swelling, highly elevated intraocular pressure, and a closed drainage angle.
