Glaucoma Symptoms: Which Ones Do You Have?

Janet recalls her glaucoma symptoms and shares when a woman should see an eye doctor.

I have been living with glaucoma this past year. I find that if I don’t get enough sleep my eyes are red and more tired. I have to use drops just to keep them moist along with the medicated eye drops. They feel a little bit itchy sometimes like allergies, but other than that I don’t have any other symptoms, or I think one of the symptoms they say are colors around lights – I don’t have that, just dryness and a bit of redness.

I think if they are starting to have any symptoms other than just blurred vision because you assume you just need glasses or need stronger glasses, but if you are having redness in the eye and itchiness, some pain, I think definitely you need to be able to go to the eye doctor and ask her. Of course, they will know; they dilate the eyes and she will know right away if it’s something serious.
