- Usually minimal (hence screening checks with Optometrists are very important)
- Peripheral (side) vision loss
The diagnosis of Glaucoma includes measuring intraocular pressure, peripheral vision testing, and scans of the optic nerve. The specialist will usually perform a slit lamp examination. There is no cure for the condition and any vision loss cannot be restored. Treatment options aim to reduce the pressure inside the eye and may include eye drops, laser and surgical procedures which can slow the progression or even prevent vision loss.
