2. Family History
We should all be up to date with our family’s medical history, especially the ones with a track record of diseases and conditions. This is because family history plays a major role in the potential risk factors for this condition. People who have a family history of glaucoma are at a greater risk of developing the disease by association with family members and genetics. This means that if you’re related to individuals with glaucoma, you may be more susceptible to developing the condition yourself. It also means that your family line may carry the defective genes that make humans prone to glaucoma.
