I took my grandad for check up and it turned out he had glaucoma that had even damaged one eye, immediately the doctor noticed he instructed me to info all my uncle's and aunties to also come for check up to avoid stories (hereditary) , the old man has been managing one eye with proper medication. He later told me his own father was blind too.
Please go for check up early detection is the key.

Yes Glaucoma is hereditary.
But unlike regular hereditary diseases, it makes sure the oil touches every branch on the genetic tree.

For example.
If A suffers from Glaucoma, A's first cousin will too. And if A's first cousin does, his nephew will too.
If A's first cousin's nephew gets glaucoma, then his grandchild could too.

So it is indirectly hereditary.
It can not be cured because it is caused by a damage to the eye nerves due to increased occular pressure.
It can only be managed if detected early, also note that nerve damages caused by Glaucoma are non reversible.
These nerve damages deteriorate till you eventually stop seeing evils.

Never in the history of Nigeria has there been a rise in glaucoma as we have it today.
This is because, 'Man dey see too many things these days' unlike in the past.

How can a man watch porn, ejaculate frequently with his eyes squinting each time he does.
Or walk on the streets seeing different shapes of yanshes and encountering police brutality without his eye pressure rising?

The only way to prevent Glaucoma is by resting your eyes a bit more.
Don't open your eyes too wide when you see big yansh and don't close your eyes too tight if you want to cum.
Don't also wake up at night to read your partner's WhatsApp messages because a High Blood Pressure can also trigger Glaucoma.

Most importantly, visit an eye clinic periodically for routine checks because Glaucoma can wake up one morning and remember your address.

Thank me later because I am too busy with fvckery.

Yes it is, cannot be cured but can be managed to delay onset and severity

Ask your doctor for the best advice..... Usually adherence to prescription is key in battle against glaucoma, the thief of sight

Some traditional Chinese medicine may also be of great help in improving the eye health of individuals with this problem.

When dealing with cataract and glaucoma, and it is always good to remember Chinese trado medicine

My old man went for his usual glaucoma check up yesterday and I went with him. Doc on duty decided to run a quick check on me with some hand held device and informed me there and then that I’ve got it too but advice to do a confirmation check.

And it turned out I definitely have glaucoma but at the early stage. There you have it bro it is definitely hereditary according to the doc.

I advice you go for check and if positive you resume treatment ASAP early detection is key as it can be aggressive sometimes.

For now no cure for glaucoma for now, but you can manage it with some eyes drops, am in my mid 30's and I have the so call glaucoma, dont fear it not going to take your eyes away, not untill you stop using your medication

Yes it cost intensive to treat it but it pay off, you have to spend minimum of 3k to 5k for eyes drop per month
