Most patients with glaucoma claim the open-angle form of the disease. This form can often be treated with eye drops or laser to control intraocular pressures. However, left uncontrolled open angle glaucoma can cause insideous effects on vision.
Narrow-angle glaucoma should be carefully watched by an Ophthalmologist. Although narrow angle glaucoma can often be treated in the same manner as open angle, it can lead to angle closure, which can be painful and dangerous.
A family history of glaucoma has been found in up to 50% of patients with the most common type of glaucoma, known as primary open-angle glaucoma.
