At Brimhall Eye Center we want you to know the early signs of glaucoma so we can help you recognize the symptoms early enough to preserve your sight.

What Are Some Early Glaucoma Symptoms?
The scary truth is that vision loss can be the very first sign of glaucoma. And in many cases glaucoma-related vision loss is permanent so if you experience any decrease in vision, it warrants an urgent eye doctor appointment. Other early symptoms depend on the type of glaucoma.
Open-Angle Glaucoma is called the "thief of sight" by the Glaucoma Research Foundation. This is because this type of the disease has no symptoms, in fact, you can have it for many years without realizing it until it is too late. This is why annual check-ups at your eye doctor are so important.
Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma symptoms are blurry vision, rainbow-like circles when you look at a bright light, eye and head pain, nausea, and sudden sight loss.
The damage caused by all types of glaucoma is associated with increased pressure on a specific part of the eye, according to The Mayo Clinic, it is vital to be checked often to prevent permanent damage.
