1. Age. Older people have high risk to get glaucoma.
2. High blood pressure also can cause glaucoma.
3. Family history
4. Diabetes
5. Steroid treatment
6. Eye injury.

Glaucoma will come without any big symptoms. Many patients don’t know how they get glaucoma. You need to check your eyes if there’s any family history get this disease. Most of patients have different eye structure and need to be identifying before the attack.
Without any serious treatment, the visual optic will be destroying. The eye vision will be narrowing and risk to get blind is high.

Glaucoma treatments include medicines, conventional surgery or laser trabeculoplasty.
1. The most of treatments need to use eye drop that will reduce intraocular stress. The eyedrop medication include carteolol (Ocupress),timolol (Timoptic), levobunolol (Betagan) and metipranolol (Optipranolol).
