9 doctors agree

In brief: Possible

Not a typical presenting symptom but at more advanced stages, especially if both eyes affected, contrast sensitivity will be decreased.

In brief: Possibly

If its advanced. Most glaucoma, if its open angle , don't have symptoms.
Poor night vision can be from a lot of things, cataracts, retinitis pigmentosa, macular degenerations, etc.

Most glaucoma patients are unaware of disease until examined by ophthalmologist. This lack of symptoms is why regular eye examinations are important for every person...glaucoma eye damage is permanent but progression of disease can be halted in most patients by early diagnosis and treatment after a simple eye examination by an ophthalmologist trained in the recognition and treatment of glaucoma.

In brief: Halos around light

If there are halos around light, this is a symptom of high pressure or glaucoma which causes glare.
Also people with glaucoma can have field loss which contributes to poor night vision.
