Closed Angle Glaucoma Santa Rosa, CA

Some people have eyes that are formed with the iris too close to the drainage angle. In these eyes, which are often small and farsighted, the iris can be pushed forward, which blocks the drainage channel. When this occurs, the fluid is unable to exit the eye which causes pressure inside to build rapidly and cause an acute closed-angle attack.


Symptoms of Closed Angle Glaucoma

Symptoms may include:

  • Blurred vision
  • Severe eye pain
  • Rainbow-colored halos around lights
  • Headache
  • Nausea and vomiting

It is important to note that this is a true eye emergency. If you experience any of these symptoms, call your ophthalmologist immediately. If this type of glaucoma is not treated quickly, blindness can result.

Two-thirds of those with this type of glaucoma develop it slowly, without any symptoms prior to an attack.
