    Got an eye exam at the VA clinic..My results, left eye, retina slightly enlarged, the video shows retinas and what to look for. If any of your family members have glaucoma or have macular degeneration, you might want to get an eye exam that takes a pic of your eyes inside,,well worth it.

    If your parents had glaucoma or macular degeneration-there is a good chance you will have it to. Thats what the eye doc told me...

    If you've never had cataract surgery that does come with age and is the easiest and the least invasive.

    Maintaining good eye pressure and a visual field yearly, is usually that's all thats required.
