Glaucoma is a serious condition for which there is no cure, making it very important to catch early to prevent progression of the disease. If left untreated, glaucoma will eventually cause blindness.
Symptoms can be unnoticeable early on. Here are some early signs of glaucoma, according to the experts at Eyecare MPLS in Minneapolis:
Problems with light
People with some types of glaucoma may see rainbow-colored halos around lights and other bright objects.
People with glaucoma can experience intense eye and head pain.
Patchy blind spots in your side (peripheral) or central vision, frequently in both eyes
Tunnel vision in the advanced stages
Nausea and vomiting
Halos around lights
Even with treatment, about 15 percent of people with glaucoma become blind in at least one eye within 20 years. Regular exams are crucial. Please contact our office at 612-470-9871 or eyecarempls.com to schedule your eye exam.
