In case of angle closure glaucoma, there will be symptoms such as boring ache in eye and recurring headaches. glaucoma (both open angle and angle closure) is a disease where optic nerve gets affected and if left undetected, it leads to irreversible blindness.
It estimates that the condition may affect 3.2million in the United Kingdom in 2050, but unless detection rates are improved, only 1.28million will have been diagnosed and be receiving the treatments they urgently need. However, the condition is symptomless in its early stages, and a regular eye test is the only way to detect it.
The group dedicated to glaucoma says individuals over 40 years of age or those with chronic disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure, excessive nearsightedness and family history of glaucoma face a higher chance of developing the eye illness, while recommending a visit to the eye doctor at least once a year for an early diagnosis.

With no symptoms and central vision lasting till last stage of glaucoma, people don't realise they are having the disease.
