More at risk for glaucoma

Dennis Thompson, a Healthday reporter,  indicated that the number of people at risk for Glaucoma is increasing. An increase in demographics such as elderly and Hispanics increases the risk for Glaucoma because of the higher propensity for these groups to develop Glaucoma. If  you have any of the risk factors such as age, Black or Hispanic, diabetic or hypertension be sure to get your eyes examined for Glaucoma every year. This disease is blinding and irreversible but can be well controlled if discovered early.
