Understanding Glaucoma and Its Symptoms

Specifically, glaucoma refers to a condition where excessive pressure is placed on the optic nerve in one or both eyes. This pressure prevents signals from reaching the brain, which can gradually cause your eyesight to deteriorate. If left untreated, glaucoma can eventually lead to permanent vision loss and blindness. For this reason, it is important to understand the common symptoms of glaucoma, which include:

Unfortunately, glaucoma doesn’t always have obvious symptoms until it’s too late. This is why regular eye exams and screenings for glaucoma are highly recommended.

It is also worth noting that while glaucoma is most common in adults aged 60 and older, it can occur to anybody at any time. Still, those with pre-existing eye conditions or those with a family history of glaucoma will be at a greater risk of developing it at some point in their lives. This is why regular screenings as part of your annual eye and vision exams are so highly recommended.

If you’re experiencing any signs of glaucoma or simply have not had a screening/exam in the past year, please be sure to schedule an eye care appointment with our optometrist here at Allerton Eye Care, New York.
