Eye care professionals at Ophthalmology Associates in Mankato say there are two main types of glaucoma. The most common being “open angle” which is usually symptom free until you’ve almost completely lost your eyesight.
There are symptoms for the second type of glaucoma. For patients suffering from “Angle closure glaucoma” , eye pain, blurred vision and seeing halos around lights raises a red flag.
Dr. Steven Anderson says, “Any damage you get from glaucoma is permanent so we can’t reverse the damage done by glaucoma. So the name of the game for glaucoma is to catch it early and to treat it and control it. If we catch it early and it’s treated, most patients can maintain vision their whole lives.”
