In brief: Few

Unfortunately most cases of elevated eye pressure are from a gradual increase in the pressure which cannot be felt.
An ophthalmologist can measure this. A far less common elevation, acute glaucoma, cause pain and vision loss quickly. If untreated, the major symptoms is vision loss but this takes a while in the usual case. Have your eyes checked regularly by your ophthalmologist.
