The most common type of Glaucoma is Open-Angle Glaucoma. This type of glaucoma often has no warning signs or symptoms, and if not detected early, can permanently damage your sight. By the time most people have symptoms, there have already been irreversible damage to the eye. This is yet another reason to visit your ophthalmologist annually, so it can be diagnosed early. Intervention and treatment are key in maintaining your vision. Other types of Glaucoma do have symptoms such as severe pain, which should be treated as an emergency. Contact Grosinger, Spigelman & Grey if you notice any new symptoms or if it is time for your comprehensive eye exam.
