prevention of gluacoma

Hello! The problem with glaucoma is that it can’t be prevented just like it can’t be cured but there are ways to control the disease in order to prevent it from progressing. Medications and surgery are used for this purpose and the earlier the diagnosis is made (just like with and illness), the better.

Do you have a history of glaucoma in your family? If you do, then you certainly fall into a major risk group for developing glaucoma. People who fall into this risk group are those who are older than 65, who are Black or Asian, who are taking steroids, suffered from eye injuries and people with diabetes and chronic inflammatory disease.

People who fall into this category are advised to have their eyes checked every one to two years.

Hi there,
Well glaucoma is not a simple problem of eyes and you have to also know that it isn’t as rare as people think it is. The fact that doesn’t go to prevention side is that glaucoma might be hereditary and it may be caused by age. Most of glaucomas are actually age related glaucoma. Only way to prevent glaucoma you have to have regular eye exams in order to notice any changes in your eyes. Only by doing this you will be able to prevent any onset of glaucoma. I hope that you already have regular eye exams and that you are not affected by this condition.
Best wishes,
Marco
