Preventing glaucoma thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Glaucoma is a common eye condition in which one or both optic nerves are damaged. It can occur due to a problem with the drainage of the intraocular fluid, which causes a build-up of pressure on the eye. This results in a person's vision being impaired or lost. Prompt and effective treatment is needed to limit the damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma generally only begins after the age of 40.

Glaucoma and heredity

The risk of 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 glaucoma.
