Types of Glaucoma
There are two types of glaucoma – open-angle and acute angle-closure. With open-angle glaucoma, patients may not notice a change in their vision at first because the initial loss of vision is of side or peripheral vision, and the visual acuity or sharpness of vision is maintained until late in the disease. Acute angle-closure glaucoma sign and symptoms include severe eye pain, nausea and vomiting, sudden onset of visual disturbance (often in low light), blurred vision, halos around the eyes and reddening of the eyes.
The good news is that you can protect your vision against serious loss with early detection and treatment with Dr. Hecht.
