Introduction to Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a sight-threatening eye condition that demands attention and care. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases characterized by increased intraocular pressure (IOP), which can damage the optic nerve, leading to vision loss. This condition typically progresses slowly and often without noticeable symptoms in its early stages, making regular eye exams crucial for early detection.

Glaucoma poses a significant risk to your vision, as it can cause gradual and irreversible vision impairment or blindness if left untreated. It’s often referred to as the “silent thief of sight” because it can sneak up without warning. Understanding Glaucoma and its risk factors is the first step in protecting your vision. At Island Eyecare, our dedicated team is here to provide you with the knowledge and expert care you need to preserve your eyesight and overall eye health.

Recognizing Glaucoma Symptoms

While Glaucoma often develops without obvious symptoms in its early stages, there are certain signs to be aware of as the condition progresses. It’s crucial to pay attention to any changes in your vision and seek prompt care if you experience any of the following symptoms:

One of the hallmark signs of Glaucoma is the gradual loss of your peripheral (side) vision. You may notice difficulty seeing objects or people to the side without turning your head.

Some individuals with Glaucoma may experience intermittent or persistent blurry vision, especially when trying to focus on distant objects.

Glaucoma can cause halos or rainbow-colored circles to appear around lights, making nighttime driving or reading challenging.

Occasionally, Glaucoma can lead to eye pain, redness, or discomfort, which should never be ignored.

Unexplained headaches, especially accompanied by visual disturbances, can sometimes be linked to increased intraocular pressure associated with Glaucoma.

It’s important to note that Glaucoma typically progresses slowly, and vision loss is irreversible. Regular eye exams, even in the absence of symptoms, are essential for early detection and effective management. Island Eyecare is here to provide you with comprehensive Glaucoma evaluations and personalized care to protect your vision and overall eye health.
