Early Symptoms of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a condition that affects the optic nerve. In some cases, it may cause permanent vision loss. While glaucoma can develop at any age, it is more common in older adults. Symptoms of the disease may not appear until significant damage has been done to the optic nerve. However, there are some early symptoms of glaucoma that can alert you to the possibility of this condition. Learn more from your eye care specialists at Eye Care Associates.

Glaucoma Symptoms to Look Out for

Below are early warning signs of glaucoma that should never be ignored. Should you notice any of these symptoms, call our optometry team immediately.

  • Severe Eye Pain or Nausea- You will notice this symptom because the eye pain associated with glaucoma can become unbearable. There may be redness in the eyes, intense headaches, or even vomiting.
  • Increased Light Sensitivity- Have you noticed that being around any light source is almost painful for your eyes? Elevated intraocular pressure, referred to as IOP, is often why this happens.
  • Blurry Eyes- Increased pressure in your eyes can push excess fluid into your cornea. As a result, your eyes may be cloudy or even look like they are waterlogged.
  • Halos Around Lights- Halos are bright colored circles that appear around any light source. If you notice these, you could have the beginning symptoms of glaucoma.

It's important to understand that glaucoma is referred to as the "silent thief of sight" because there are no warning signs in the early stages of development. Therefore, it's imperative to have regular exams with our optometrists.
