When to Seek Medical Care
Acute angle-closure glaucoma is a medical emergency and must be promptly treated to prevent optic nerve damage and vision loss.
Eye pain, headache, blurred vision, and nausea may occur if the pressure increases suddenly inside the eye. If one experiences any of these symptoms, he or she should call the ophthalmologist (a medical doctor who specializes in eye care and surgery) immediately.
