Understanding the genetics of glaucoma

Many genes and polymorphisms have been identified as being associated with glaucoma, predicting progression, identifying those at increased risk and allowing treatment to be optimised.

Precision management to revolutionise glaucoma diagnosis and treatment

Artificial intelligence and genetic testing are expected to facilitate choosing the best treatment for each unique glaucoma patient within the next decade. This will not only lead to the best outcomes for individuals but will also spare them the costs and side effects of suboptimal treatments.

Is low vitamin D a risk factor for primary open angle glaucoma?
