The eye is filled with fluid that should be steadily draining and being refilled.  In this disorder, the outflow from the eye is restricted or blocked, leading to a much higher pressure within the eye.  This can be caused by poor formation of the eye, the lens slipping, tumors, or other problems.  When this happens, the eye can recede into the skull, the internal structures can be damaged or the optic nerve can be severed.  Treatment that is caught quickly can reduce symptoms or prevent them from getting worse.  Symptoms can include:

  • High Pressure Within the Eye
  • Headaches
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Behavioral Changes
  • Constant Blinking
  • Rubbing of the Eyes
  • Squinting
  • Bloodshot Eyes
  • Slow Pupil Reaction
  • Eye Tilting to the Side
  • Eye Receding into the Ocular Cavity
  • Enlargement of Eye
  • Cloudiness in the Cornea
  • Dilated Pupil that does not React to Light
  • Vision Loss
