Question:
How many types of glaucoma are there? I've been told I may have a more rare type of it. My only symptoms are loss of peripheral vision.      

Answer:
There are over a hundred types of glaucoma. Almost all of them begin with loss of peripheral vision, rather than central vision. An evaluation by an Eye M.D. can help to determine if you have glaucoma.
