Hello Sightline,

thank you very much for your replay and your advices regarding to eye health check for me and my kids.

I have a friend who already tried Chromozoom Vision test mentioned above and was very satisfied with the results.. got detailed info about her eye predispositions and recommendations what could help in the future. So I was wondering if somebody here already tried these kind of tests. I would like to get more reviews from lots of sites and than make a decision Wink

Hello Mariiina,

 

If there is history of glaucoma in your family it increases the risk of the possibility of developing glaucoma in the future, but this is not always the case.

As a member of your family has been recently diagnosed, it is important that you have your eyes checked regularly, every two years, with an optometrist so that if there is anything showing that needs further investigation, it will be picked up early and you can be referred to an eye clinic for further tests.

Tests for glaucoma are normally from the age of 40 upwards so your children shouldn't need to be seen regularly unless they notice a change in their vision. If you want to have their eyes tested regularly for peace of mind make an appointment at your local optometrists for a routine eye health check.

Hello everybody.. I have a favour to ask... A glaucoma was diagnosed in my family. Is there any chance I, or my kids, may have a glaucoma in our future lifes? I have been looking for some informations and I found an article about Chromozoom DNA genetic tests. These tests can discover my genetic predisposition to a range of common and unusual eye conditions. What do you think about that? Would it be helpful for me, us, in this situation? Thank you very much for your answer, advices...
