Glaucoma...do we "see" it coming?

My mom has glaucoma and has had surgery on both eyes. I was surprise when I came here and did not see any mention of the disease of the eye which seems to be quite common place.

From my reading, glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse overtime. It is often associated with a buildup of pressure inside the eye. Glaucoma tends to be inherited and may not show up until later in life.

That being the case yo could well understand why I would be interested in knowing as much as I can about this subject.

Am I am risk, are you?

I don't know any relative of mine that has Glaucoma, and hopefully, I'm not at risk, too. However, ever since I was a kid I've always had problems with my eyesight. It scares me, though, since it can cause total blindness if not treated. I'm only 23 and as I've read, people who are at risk are those with ages 40 and above.

We cannot neglect the genetic risk factors of glaucoma. If you are experiencing this disease in your younger age, then the pressure and risk will be high. My grandfather had glaucoma and at the age of 40, my father also experienced the same. He had ankle closure glaucoma with high pressure in the eyes. That was a kind of severe and he had a corrective laser eye surgery in Auburn. it's better to consult an expert for an eye check-up. Take enough precautions if needed. All the best.

An excessive pressure within the eyes or lack of fluid leads to glaucoma or open ocular hypertension problem. This condition may further lead to optic nerves damages or vision loss issue. Bimatoprost online found a glaucoma treating solution, which works fabulously to ease down the condition soon.

RE: Glaucoma...do we "see" it coming?

I remember reading that people over 60 years old are mostly at a risk for glaucoma. It might start out with losing your peripheral vision and then, gradually, your overall vision. Just thinking about losing my vision gives me chills. I don't have perfect vision but I'm thankful that I can still see. But to totally lose your vision? That's just something that scares me.

I'm glad your mom got surgery for her glaucoma. I didn't know that glaucoma is treatable so that was refreshing to know. I think being able to be diagnosed at an early time is still one of the best ways of combatting glaucoma.

Glaucoma can be hereditary. I would get my eyes checked out if I were in your position. They can dilate your eyes to get a better look at your optic nerve to see if you are at risk.

RE: Glaucoma...do we "see" it coming?

Yes, it can be hereditary. Actually it also runs in my family so I have my yearly appointment with the eye doctor. There's no sign yet that I have glaucoma though there was a tiny cataract that my doctor found. He said though that it isn't necessary yet to remove it. I'm very thankful as well that I still have no signs of glaucoma in my eyes.

However, my family has a history of glaucoma and so does my husband. I think once my son is in the right age, I'd definitely have his eyes checked yearly. It's better to be safe than sorry especially when it comes to his health.
