I saw this post in All my Circles by Devernder ji.

Does Dr. Narender ji agree with this test as a sure indicator for Glaucoma?

Glaucoma and I
Glaucoma is a silent eye disease. The victim does not realize the effect of glaucoma, even until, the loss of vision is almost 100% in affected eye. The onset of glaucoma can be checked by simple test at home itself.
One needs to lie down straight and focus vertically up on ceiling. Close one eye at a time and view the ceiling, without moving the eyeballs or changing the point of focus. The area of vision with each eye should be equal. If the areas of vision are different, then the eye with lesser vision area is affected. Normally the right eye is affected first and, to best of my knowledge, both eyes are not affected simultaneously.
Once the reduction in view area is noticed, immediately contact eye specialist.
Thank you. more  

Restriction in visual field is usually a sure indicator of glaucoma, but by the time visual field gets restricted, the disease has already progressed! There are other tests like recording of intraocular pressure and fundus examination that can detect the disease earlier...and the best safeguard is to visit your eye doctor once a year - Dr Narendra Kumar, Ophthacare Eye Centre more
