Signs & Symptoms of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is often called the "silent thief of sight," because it has few or no initial symptoms. Glaucoma generally develops gradually over several years and often goes undetected in the early stages. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma can prevent permanent vision loss and blindness.

Angle-Closure Glaucoma (ACG)

Angle-closure glaucoma (ACG) is a less common form of glaucoma. Unlike open-angle glaucoma, the angle of the fluid drainage channel in patients with ACG is critically narrow or completely occluded, leading to a sudden increase in eye pressure.

It can be categorized into Acute Angle-Closure Glaucoma and Chronic Angle-Closure Glaucoma.

Signs and symptoms of closed-angle glaucoma
  • Blurry vision
  • Sudden and intense pain
  • Red eyes
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomitting
  • Seeing halos or 'rainbow-like' rings around lights
  • Sudden vision loss
