Many people a sensation of significant pressure and pulsing coming from their eyes. This pain can make it difficult to sleep or participate in daily activities. In some cases, the pain can also lead to nausea and even vomiting.

Along with eye pain, there are also visible symptoms that can indicate glaucoma. People with glaucoma will often notice reddening around their eyes. Depending on the severity, it could also come with tearing that is difficult to control.

Changes in Vision

If you have glaucoma you will likely notice a change in your vision. This change may include halos when you are looking directly at a light source. If this disease is left untreated, these vision issues will likely get worse and can even lead to blindness.
