SYMPTOMS OF GLAUCOMA

Acute- angle closure Glaucoma

patients can feel symptoms such as sudden eye pain or headache, seeing rainbow-colored halos around bright lights, nausea or vomiting, sweating, red eyes, blurred vision (which can be like through a fog, or even severe vision loss.) When patients touch their eyes, they might feel the eyeballs are as tight as a marble.

 Prognosis
After Glaucoma Treatment

The main goal of glaucoma treatment is to stop the disease from progressing and causing damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma is a disease that cannot be completely cured, but most cases can be successfully controlled.

After laser treatment or surgery, patients need to strictly follow the follow-up schedule so that they can regularly monitor their vision and eye pressure. When seeing any abnormality, impaired vision, the patient should immediately go to the eye specialist facilities for timely intervention. Treatment follow-up is an important factor that greatly influences the final outcome. In many cases, although glaucoma was detected and treated, the patient thought that it was completely cured, so he did not go to the doctor for further follow-up, as a result, the disease continued to progress slowly leading to complete loss of vision. Therefore, patients need to follow periodical follow-up from the time of diagnosis, persist in lifelong treatment to control disease progression, and preserve their vision.

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that cause damage to the optic nerve and loss of visual field. Glaucoma has been called the silent thief of sight, and it damages the eyes and results in blindness if not detected and treated promptly.
