Glaucoma Part 3 (Ms Catia Sicari) Reskeon Newsletter, Australia - Sept 2003 (Teacher: Michael)

Asked who is at risk, Ms Sicari said that although anyone can get glaucoma, some people have higher risk, such as family history of glaucoma, diabetes, migraine, short-sightedness (myopia), past or present eye injury, high blood pressure and past or present use of cortisone drugs (steroids). 'Glaucoma Australia' recommends all people to have glaucoma test every 2 -3 years by age of 40 and for people in at-risk groups to start their glaucoma tests no later than age of 35.
Ms Sicari said that regular glaucoma tests every 2 - 3 years are best way to detect glaucoma early. glaucoma test usually consists of eye pressure test, examination of optic nerve with dilation drops and visual field assessment if needed (this tests sensitivity of side vision, where glaucoma strikes first).
Finally, Ms Sicari said glaucoma is serious and common eye disease that can cause vision loss if left untreated. If you haven't had glaucoma test, speak to your eye specialist, local optometrist or family doctor, and Be Eye Wise to avoid glaucoma blindness.

This information talk on this important subject was given by Ms Catia Sicari from Glaucoma Australia.
