Detecting Glaucoma


Glaucoma can develop rapidly

Sudden loss of vision in one eye

Sudden occurrence of hazy or blurred vision

Flashes of light-dark sports

Halos or rainbows appearing around light

Severe headache or eye pain

Nausea or vomiting



Do I Have Glaucoma?

Common tests that your doctor will perform before making a glaucoma diagnosis1:-


Ophthalmoscope / Slit-lamp test

Checks the pupil to examine the shape and colour of the optic nerve


Tonometry test

Checks intraocular pressure (IOP) or the inner pressure of the eye


Visual field test

Checks your field of vision to determine whether it has been affected by glaucoma



Checks whether the angle where the iris meets the cornea is open, narrow or closed


Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

A non-invasive imaging test like an ultrasound to take cross-section pictures of the retina


Go for regular eye check-up

In some cases, you may still be at risk of glaucoma even if the eye pressure is normal2. Since the early stages of glaucoma has no uncomfortable or painful symptoms1, it is therefore important for you to perform regular check-ups with your ophthalmologist and treat the disease early.
