Normal tension glaucoma and Alzhimiers

Normal tension glaucoma and Alzhimiers

Submitted by Cruitt on Sun, 04/29/2012 - 11:45am

I am a 56 year old female just diagnosed with normal tension glaucoma in my right eye. I have some optic nerve damage and several field vision tests have revealed that I have already lost 25% vision in my right eye. My question is this: my Mother also has Glaucoma and has Alzheimer's Disease. I'm just wondering if my chances of inheriting Alzheimer's are greater now that I've already seemed to inherit her Glaucoma. Sorry if I didn't post this question in the right place I'm new!
