Glaucoma is a disease that damages the eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of the eye. Glaucoma is mainly of two types, namely Primary open-angle Glaucoma (POAG) and Angle-closure Glaucoma/ Closed-angle Glaucoma/ Narrow-angle Glaucoma. Some of the key Glaucoma symptoms include vision loss, hazy eyes, seeing halos around lights, redness in the eyes, upset stomach or vomiting, and eye pain.
