What Are the Symptoms of Glaucoma?
Although acute angle-closure glaucoma may cause pain, redness, haloes, and blurred vision, most people with glaucoma do not experience any symptoms until they have lost a significant amount of vision. This loss of vision is a result of optic nerve damage and is permanent; it cannot be reversed. Because of this, regular eye examinations with an ophthalmologist (a medical doctor who specializes in diseases and surgery of the eye) are very important.
