Book excerpt.

Download a chart to clarify your glaucoma diagnosis. Various glaucoma sub-groups require different treatments to reduce the risks of any further visual damage. To learn your own diagnosis and to understand better your personal risks, always ask your ophthalmologist to identify your glaucoma on the chart . Brief descriptions of each glaucoma diagnosis are also presented in this book.

Your exact glaucoma diagnosis is important to know not just for yourself but also for your family. As your children and siblings face substantially increased risks for the same condition, they need to consult their own doctors for assessment and to plan their own eye care for the future, to prevent this debilitating disease.

For various glaucoma diagnoses listed in the chart, visual field deteriorations are typically quite different. Thus, on average, annual deterioration for exfoliation glaucoma is double that for normal-tension glaucoma (see Table 1 in Carlos G. De Moraes & al. Visual field progression outcomes in glaucoma subtypes, Acta Ophthalmol. 2013: 91: 288–293).
