Unmasking the Stealthy Thief: Recognizing Glaucoma Symptoms
Glaucoma often lurks in the shadows, but there are subtle signs that can help you detect its presence:
Gradual Loss of Peripheral Vision: Also known as tunnel vision, where your side or peripheral vision diminishes.
Elevated Eye Pressure: Increased intraocular pressure, although not always present, is a risk factor.
Blurred or Hazy Vision: Objects may appear less sharp or clear.
Halos Around Lights: Seeing rainbow-colored rings or halos around lights.
Severe Eye Pain: Especially in cases of acute angle-closure glaucoma.
If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s imperative to seek prompt evaluation at Al Salama Eye Hospital. Early detection is the key to managing glaucoma effectively.
