Pressure buildup in the eye is proven to be a major risk factor for Glaucoma. If Glaucoma is left untreated it may lead to blindness.
Blurred vision, appearance of rainbow-colored circles, severe eye and head pain, nausea, vomiting or sudden sight loss. Regular eye exams can help detect glaucoma in its early stages before irreversible damage occurs.
Glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, pills, laser surgery, traditional surgery or a combination of these methods. The goal of any treatment is to prevent loss of vision, as vision loss from glaucoma is irreversible.
