This is an eye disease with tense eyeball, dilated and greenish pupil, and marked impairment of vision which may cause blindness. It is often caused by emotional excitement or over fatigue, and in the early stages the patient may suffer from slight distension of eyeball, ipsilateral frontal headache, soreness of the nose, and blurred vision as though the eyeball were covered by fog. After a rest, the symptoms may disappear, but if not effectively treated serious clinical manifestations of glaucoma may appear. In traditional Chinese medicine glaucoma can be divided into two types: The prompt onset of greenish glaucoma and the insidious onset of bluish glaucoma.
