People over the age of 60, diabetic, patients of African American descent, thin corneas, and/or patients with a family history are at a higher risk of glaucoma than others.

Currently, there is no way to prevent glaucoma through supplements or to reverse vision loss due to glaucoma.

You may be able to reduce your risk of glaucoma by not smoking, avoiding excessive amounts of alcohol, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a varied and healthy diet, regular exercise, and an active lifestyle. In addition to your regular eye exams.
