Symptoms of glaucoma

Glaucoma is a progressive disorder leading to irreversible blindness. The disease destroys the cells of the retina and the optic nerve due to growing intraocular pressure. The optic nerve of the patient is atrophied, and the visual signals fail to reach the brain. The person’s vision gets worse, the peripheral vision is disturbed which limits the visual zone.

  • pain, discomfort in the eye and narrowing of the vision field;

    • people over 40-50 with a high degree of myopia or a high degree of hypermetropia (particularly women after 50);
