What is glaucoma?
It is estimated 1 in 50 people will develop Glaucoma over the age of 40.
Glaucoma is a serious life changing disease that can threaten your vision and impact your daily life. It is the leading cause of blindness and if it goes undetected, it can cause permanent damage to your eyes.
Some people may have medical conditions and hereditary traits that can increase the chances of having glaucoma, this is a disease that can strike anybody so it’s important to get your eyes checked at least once a year and if you’re over the age of 40 then twice.
The most worrying thing about glaucoma is that it is a silent condition and for most patients it develops without any symptoms at all. This is why it is so vital to have regular eye health checks. Some patients, although it is definitely the minority, do develop some symptoms which can include:
- Red eyes
- Tunnel vision
- Blurry vision
- Halo-rigs in the line of sight
- Vision that is progressively worsening – initially in the peripheral vision, later centrally
- Pain in or around the eyes
