Angle Recession Glaucoma Symptoms
Like most people with other forms of glaucoma, if a person has angle recession glaucoma, he or she may not have any specific eye or visual complaints.
Although eye trauma invariably occurs before angle recession, it is common to have forgotten details of the injury or even the entire episode after a number of years have passed. During regular eye examinations, an ophthalmologist (a medical doctor who specializes in eye care and surgery) may be helpful in eliciting otherwise forgotten information that could point to the cause of the angle recession.
