Vascular dysregulation plays a role in glaucoma development and progression, especially in Normal Tension Glaucoma. Question is: how does one know they have vascular dysregulation? What are some signs, symptoms, etc. to look out for?

One of the most obvious symptoms is an exaggerated response to cold in your extremities, especially fingers, toes and ears. Going out on a cold day without fuzzy lined boots, two pairs of mitts and a hat to cover my ears would be extremely painful for me.

I think most people, if not all of us, have cold hands, feet, nose, ears at some point, in some environment. So do we all have vascular dysregulation? It’s very confusing to me.

I suggest you take a look at the Flammer Syndrome : https://link.springer.com/article/10.1186/1878-5085-5-11 Raynaud's phenomenon in the fingers is for example definitely a vascular dysregulation that causes decreased blood flow to the fingers. For those who have this problem due to cold or emotional stress, it seems to me conceivable that the eyes could be affected as well by a decreased flow of oxygen because of the vasospasm.

This is an interesting read about nutrition and lifestyle recommendations for Flammer syndrome. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5545990/
