I am hoping that someone here can help me and point out what the risk factors of glaucoma in children are? My son has recently been fitted with glasses (something that he is very unhappy about indeed!) and the optician mentioned something about a glaucoma test. I didn't know kids could get that, but why would he think my son has glaucoma or might get it?

There are outer signs of glaucoma on the eye, and they are often visible before glaucoma has actually developed. Having said that, I have never heard of a case where a young child got glaucoma either, though I know that it is sometimes present in teenagers. Risk factors would be relatives that have already been diagnosed with glaucoma, definitely. Are there any such people in your immediate family?
