The early symptoms of glaucoma are: first, emotional excitement or staying in the dark for a long time (such as watching movies, televisions or working in darkroom), then there are eye distention, headache and blurred vision. There is a cloud of fog at the moment. This is the early symptom of angle closure glaucoma. After repeated repeated occurrence, it is possible to suddenly enter the acute stage of the attack.
The early symptoms of glaucoma were two, and the drinking water was more frequently. Glaucoma patients when drinking more than 300 milliliters of water, there will be headache and glaucoma. Most of them are in mood swings. Excessive anxiety, depression, panic and rage may lead to acute attack of glaucoma. Insomnia is also one of the inducing factors of glaucoma. These mental factors can cause excessive tension in the central nervous system, make the stability of the environment in the body lose balance and induce the increase of intraocular pressure. Glaucoma can cause serious blindness, so it should be found early.

The clinical classification of glaucoma is rather complicated. Most of them have no definite systemic or ocular secondary causes. They are called primary glaucoma. They are divided into two categories: open angle and angle closure. They all have obvious genetic tendency. When the acute attack of glaucoma, the patient's clinical symptoms are intense, and they usually go to the hospital in time. However, because of the slow development of chronic open angle glaucoma and partial angle closure glaucoma, there is almost no self-conscious symptoms, so it is easy to delay the treatment time. Some patients didn't go to the hospital until one eye blindness. It's too late.
So what are the early symptoms of glaucoma?
A decline of 1. visual acuity, optometric vision correction is less than 1 (logarithmic visual acuity chart for 5), especially in high myopia, wearing appropriate glasses still often have headaches bulging eyes. 由于高度近视的巩膜(眼白部分)变长,弹性明显下降。 So the high intraocular pressure, symptoms not obvious or asymptomatic patients, it is easy to neglect, and vision are quietly loss, doctors are often missed.
2. glaucoma patients usually drink more water, once a drink of water more than 300 ml of headache. This is because the water speed, the amount of more, can cause blood dilution to reduce osmotic pressure, into the eye of the room water will increase, thus causing an increase in intraocular pressure. The patients often have eye swelling and headache 15~30 minutes after drinking water.
3. in the morning after getting up reading books is more difficult, easy to appear in the root of the nose acid bloated and orbital forehead distention pain. Because the normal person's eye pressure has the law of the day and night fluctuation, the general morning is high, and the night is lower. Glaucoma patients in 24 hours of intraocular pressure fluctuate more, so the morning eye pressure is higher, the symptoms will appear.
4., emotional excitement or staying in the dark for a long time (such as watching movies, TV or working in darkroom), there is eye swelling, headache and blurred vision. There is a cloud of fog at the moment. This is the early symptom of angle closure glaucoma. After repeated repeated occurrence, it is possible to suddenly enter the acute stage of the attack.
5. night lights appear at the halo of a riot of colours, like a rainbow appeared in the sky after the rain, the medical term iridization. This is due to an increase in intraocular pressure and corneal edema resulting in a change in corneal refraction.

Early symptoms of glaucoma:
A, eye swelling, headache, blurred vision, especially in emotion or in the dark stay too long (such as angry, watching movies on TV or in the darkroom work), the above symptoms can appear, after a rest can alleviate the symptoms of glaucoma, seizures also known as glaucoma. Repeatedly appears, there may be severe eye pain, headache, visual acuity decreased sharply, with nausea, vomiting and other symptoms, sometimes misdiagnosed as acute gastroenteritis and cerebrovascular disease.
Two, premature presbyopia, such as 40 years ago (presbyopia presbyopia but to appear earlier and longsighted differentiated), especially women, presbyopic glasses degree of change quickly, need frequent replacement of glasses, indicating that the loss associated with eye adjustment, it is directly proportional to the degree of early lesions of glaucoma.
Three, the gradual decline of eyesight, optometry visual acuity less than 1 (logarithmic visual acuity chart for 5), especially in high myopia, wearing appropriate glasses still often have headaches bulging eyes. Due to high myopia sclera long elastic decreased, when the high intraocular pressure, symptoms not obvious or not the symptoms can not cause patients to pay attention, the doctor also missed, and the damage of visual function is more and more serious. (visual impairment include decreased visual acuity, reduced vision, etc.)
Four, look at the rainbow lights at night, there is a riot of colours in halo lights like after the rainbow in the sky. This is due to increased intraocular pressure, corneal edema caused by corneal refractive change.
Five, if you drink too much water (such as drinking more than 300ml at a time), you will notice eye swelling and headache after drinking 15--30 minutes. This is because the speed of drinking water is fast and the volume is large. It can reduce the osmotic pressure caused by blood dilution and increase the number of aqueous humor entering the eyes, resulting in the increase of intraocular pressure.
Six, the morning after reading, reading newspapers is difficult, there is nasal root soreness and orbitofrontal pain, this is because the normal intraocular pressure with diurnal fluctuation, generally high and low in the morning and night, 24 hours intraocular pressure glaucoma patients greater volatility, so the morning intraocular pressure is higher, and the the symptoms.
If the patient has the early symptoms of glaucoma, he should check with the ophthalmologist in time to see if he has glaucoma, so that he can detect and treat early, so that we can improve the therapeutic effect on glaucoma and minimize the risk of blindness.

The common symptoms are:
1. evening, the pupil becomes large, eyes will feel suddenly very pain, pain, see things very vague, sometimes see the light, because the corneal edema will appear rainbow phenomenon, see red and green lights around the rainbow circle at night, and even see things very vague, see.
2. sometimes also have a headache, nausea and vomiting, at night, a little swelling eyes, brow with pain, sometimes because of too long reading time and cause eye pain, halo, sensitive.
3. the decline of vision, there is also one of the situation is myopia, the degree of myopia is always changing.
