Glaucoma In Eyes: Symptoms And Useful Tips

Glaucoma is a condition which threatens vision and is known to gradually steal sight without any warning. Glaucoma is a disease which is often called a ‘silent thief of sight’ because in the early stages of the disease there may be no glaucoma symptoms.



Glaucoma can be controlled from further damaging the optical nerve. This can be achieved by a regular and disciplined treatment by an ophthalmologist. The treatment for glaucoma should be started as early as possible after it’s been detected.

Glaucoma Symptoms:

  • Gradual loss of peripheral vision.
  • Blurring of vision.
  • Inability to adjust the eyes in dark rooms, such as cinema halls.
  • Frequent changes in the number of the spectacles.
  • Seeing rainbow colored halos around lights.
  • Redness in eye.
  • Fleeing of a blind area in the eye.
  • Severe pain in the eye or facial pain, vomiting, nausea and headaches.

If you come across any of the above glaucoma symptoms, do not neglect and get a proper check up of your eye done by an ophthalmologist.

You should be cautious and careful about glaucoma. Keep a check on the following factors:

  • You have a family history of glaucoma.
  • You are a steroid user for a long time.
  • You are 45 years of age or above.
  • You area diabetic or have disease such as thyroid or hypertension.
  • You have been through ocular trauma or intra ocular surgery in the past.
  • You suffer from near sightedness or myopia.

Useful tips To Control Glaucoma:

  • TIP (1)

Though there is no proven way to prevent glaucoma, but regular check ups and frequent monitoring for glaucoma symptoms can help to detect the disease in the early stages.

  • TIP (2)

Be regular in taking the prescribed medicines. Take the right medicine at the right time exactly as it is prescribed.

  • TIP (3)

Take the time out for taking your medicines in between your regular routines such as mealtime, walking and bedtime.

  9. Cedar Eye Center says:

    Great tips! I think that the best way to prevent glaucoma is early detection. One can also undergo a dilated eye exam to check whether his optic nerve is damaged. Although glaucoma cannot be cured, early detection is still important as it stops the disease from progressing.

    • RJSKOCHHAR says:

      Yes, early detection is the best way for the timely treatment of glaucoma and to stop it from progressing further.

      • There is nothing in this world which cannot be treated. Just the fact is we have to make ourselves strong enough to fight with it. Every cure or illness can be treated with simple ways; just you have to give some time for your self.

  11. I have family history of chronic simple glaucoma and I individually suffered from symptoms of it since 30 years of age. I often used anti glaucoma medicines for long time,but my symptoms did not relieve;instead my headache got worsened. After suffering for eight long years I made determination,left sedentary lifestyle of my officer job, and started brisk aerobic and anaerobic exercises followed by long breathing exercises[not strictly yoga pranayama].The MIRACLE was I was completely got cured of headache and other symptoms of GLAUCOMA with lowering of intra-ocular pressure with calmness and blissful mind in addition.My exercises are-5 minutes suryanamaskar , 5 minutes push ups and sit ups,5 minutes jogging at same place without moving,and lastly 5 to 10 minutes deep and long breathing exercises.

  13. Joey Walden says:

    I remember when my uncle started to get glaucoma. Like the symptoms mentioned, he started to get bad vision at night, he didn’t think much of it. His sight started getting worse during the day as well. I think that if you have glaucoma you should immediately look to the doctor to get you everything you need instead of holding it off.

  14. I Ghin says:

    I want to ask that weather with a normal push ups is there is a chance of getting a retinal detachment, or the progression of the detachment.
