In brief: Glaucoma affects

Your peripheral vision, your symptoms are due to a slight amount of nearsightedness that occurs at night, "night myopia", this happens to everyone and is not related to glaucoma.
Glaucoma vision deficits come with uncontrolled or advanced glaucoma, not in the early stages.
