Answer

Patients may report worsening or blurry vision accompanied by halos or rainbows and photophobia. Patients may experience systemic symptoms such as headache, nausea, or vomiting. [4]  Corneal sensation is also noted to be decreased in patients with angle-closure glaucoma. Other physical exam characteristics of PKPG include redness of the affected eye and severe pain around the affected eye or both eyes. [4]
