Question
They say that initial symptom of glaucoma is not usually noticed.
How is it possible that you do not notice that your peripheral vision is narrowing down ?

Answer
Dear Houshang,
I had answered this query, however, seems it did not get uploaded.
You will need to do a Visual Field Analysis Test at an eye clinic for this. Also, the eye doctor examines you knowing your intra ocular pressure and if there is any sign of pressure increase in the eye which could have affected the visual field.
