In most cases, Glaucoma is associated with higher-than-normal pressure inside the eye — a condition called ocular hypertension. But it also can occur when intraocular pressure (IOP) is normal. If untreated or uncontrolled, Glaucoma first causes peripheral vision loss and eventually can lead to blindness. And because most cases of glaucoma have few or no early symptoms, about half of patients suffering with glaucoma don't know they have it.
How long does it take to become blind from glaucoma?
Glaucoma is usually a slow disease. Untreated glaucoma takes on an average of 15 years to progress from early damage to blindness with an IOP of 21 to 25 mmHg, 7 years with 25 to 30 mmHg, and 3 years with a pressure more than 30 mmHg. Thus, most eye doctors will treat a pressure over 30 without signs of damage.
