Although most glaucomas are a symptomatic, and therefore likely to be chance findings in optometric practice, acute angle closure glaucoma (AACG) has a very distinct clinical presentation and its symptomatic nature means such patients may, in fact, be seen by a GP or directly at the hospital eye service (HES) first.
Raised pressure does not usually cause pain or any other symptoms, unless the rise is sudden and rapid as in acute angle closure glaucoma, which is relatively uncommon.
