Lens-Particle Glaucoma (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care

If you experience eye pain, redness, and blurry vision, you should contact an ophthalmologist (a medical doctor who specializes in eye care and surgery) immediately. This is especially important if you have recently undergone intraocular surgery (particularly cataract surgery) or if you have experienced an eye injury.

Regular eye examinations with an ophthalmologist are important to screen for eye diseases, especially since the onset of lens-particle glaucoma has been reported to occur from weeks or months to years after surgery or injury/trauma.
