Glaucoma is an eye condition that causes gradual sight loss due to increased pressure within the eyeball. Though it has no cure, glaucoma can be treated swiftly by ophthalmologists at Eastside Eye Physicians in Shelby Township or St. Clair Shores upon early detection. If not checked early, glaucoma often leads to irreversible blindness. You are at risk for Glaucoma if you:
Are over 40 years
Have a past eye injury
Have extremely poor vision
Have relatives who had glaucoma
Loss of sight in one or both eyes: There is a reduction in the sharpness of your vision and a blind spot around your field of vision.
Cloudy vision: Your field of vision appears to be either foggy or cloudy.
Seeing colorful rings: Especially when driving at night, this symptom becomes strongly manifested. Oncoming headlights or streetlights may appear to be encircled by a circular ring of light.
