5 Early signs of Glaucoma


Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, often caused by an abnormally high pressure in your eye, which is essential for good vision. It is a leading cause of blindness for people over 60 years old. However, blindness from glaucoma can often be prevented with early treatment. It shows no symptoms until vision loss occurs, but acute angle-closure glaucoma has several early signs of development. These signs mean you should visit your optometrist immediately as this form of glaucoma can cause rapid vision loss. #GlaucomaAwarenessWeek
