Glaucoma causes gradual loss of peripheral vision, eventually leading to tunnel vision. Few other symptoms exist. This is why it is important to see a specialists as soon as possible to determine if you have glaucoma.
There are several types of glaucoma, open-angle glaucoma is the most common. Other less common forms are low-tension glaucoma, angle-closure glaucoma, congenital glaucoma, pigmentary glaucoma, and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma. Glaucoma tests, performed at all ICON eye examinations, can detect the disease in early stages and identify the type of glaucoma.
