If you have answered yes or unsure to one or more of these questions you may be at a higher risk of developing glaucoma.
Most people are recommended to have a comprehensive eye examination for glaucoma every 2 years from age 50 or when advised by your eye health professional.
For those of African or Asian descent, or for those who have a family history of glaucoma, it is recommended that you have a glaucoma test from age 40. If your family member has advanced glaucoma, you should start getting your eyes checked 10 years earlier than the age your relative was diagnosed at. For those identified as glaucoma suspects, it will be beneficial to have an eye test every 6 months or as recommended by your eye care professional.
The only way to know if you have glaucoma is to visit an optometrist for a simple eye exam it’s quick and easy and it just might save your eyesight.
