Glaucoma is a set of disorders that can deteriorate the optic nerve, which has the important job of sending visual information to the brain. If not treated early enough, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss. This condition is almost always caused by elevated eye pressure from built-up fluid. Data shows that close to two million Americans have glaucoma, many of whom don't even know it. Though science hasn't developed a cure for the disease, it may be controlled via early diagnosis and the best therapies. At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, we have state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies and are highly trained in the best glaucoma management methods. If you are 40 years old or over, reach out to our Bloomington, IN facility and schedule your exam to get a head start on managing your ocular health.
The many types of glaucoma often have no symptoms at all initially. Be that as it may, each version may also cause one or two symptoms that feel insignificant or severe. When glaucoma becomes more advanced, patients may notice problems, like worsened peripheral vision, dimmed vision, eye fatigue, and eye redness. As glaucoma advances, symptoms often start to include halos, tunnel vision, nausea, and eye pain. Since glaucoma doesn't generally cause any symptoms until its advanced stages, scheduling frequent comprehensive eye exams are crucial to slow or delay vision loss.
