What are the risk factors for developing narrow angle glaucoma?
-Increasing lens thickness;
-Ethnicity (i.e., Inuit Eskimo, East Asian).
Like all forms of glaucoma, narrow angle glaucoma is not reversible. It is a gradual narrowing of the peripheral vision. Our goals is best to prevent glaucoma, than to treat it.
Preventing narrow angle glaucoma starts from getting your eyes examined at the Optometrist's office routinely. The examination of your anterior and posterior eye structure, as well as your eye pressure, is part of the procedures of a routine eye exam.
