Preventing pseudoexfoliation glaucoma thanks to knowledge of your DNA

 Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PEX) is a form of glaucoma that is relatively common in older people. With PEX the system that drains the intraocular fluid is blocked by a white, flaky material originating from the lens of the eye. This increases eye pressure, which results in damage to the optic nerve. In the early stage a deterioration in side vision is experienced. Central vision is only lost in a later stage.

Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma and heredity

The risk of pseudoexfoliation glaucoma is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of pseudoexfoliation glaucoma.
