    The main challenge of glaucoma is that there are often no symptoms early in the disease process. The peripheral vision is first affected and it may not be until the disease has advanced that vision loss is noticed. Unfortunately, once the vision has been lost it is not reversible. If left untreated, eventually this can lead to blindness. Occasionally patients may notice non-specific symptoms such as headaches, tiredness of the eyes, haloes around lights at night and patchy vision. If any of these symptoms are experienced, please get in touch with our team for a consultation.
