Risk factor test for glaucoma.
Anyone can develop glaucoma, but some people are at greater risk than others. If you are over the age of 45, have a family history or glaucoma, are of African or Hispanic/Latin decent, are diabetic, nearsighted, have suffered from a previous eye injury or have had regular or long-term use of steroids/cortisone, you are at an increased risk of glaucoma. Other symptoms include high IOP, sudden ocular pain, seeing halos around lights, eye redness and a sudden decrease of vision. It is important that anyone with any of these risk factors get regular eye checkups. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma can slow the progression of the disease. All relatives of anyone diagnosed with glaucoma should be examined.
This test is designed to evalute your risk of developping glaucoma.
