EYE-Q Test

EYE-Q TEST
Hello, Now that you have read the patient info on glaucoma, take out a few minutes from your busy schedule and take this EYE-Q test —See how much you know about glaucoma. Kindly answer either True, False, or Not Sure.
1.Glaucoma is more common in Africans than in Whites.
2. Glaucoma tends to run in families.
3. A person can have glaucoma and not know it.
4. Eye pain is often a symptom of glaucoma.
5. Glaucoma can be controlled.
6. Glaucoma is caused by increased eye pressure.
7. Vision lost from glaucoma can be restored.
8. A complete glaucoma exam consists only of measuring eye pressure.
9. People at risk for glaucoma should have an eye examination through dilated pupils.

To see if you have a perfect Eye-Q score, read all the answers that follow below. If you got 9 or 10 right, congratulations!!!! You now know a lot about glaucoma. If you missed some, review the answers so you can share your knowledge with your family and friends.

ANSWERS
1. True. In a study funded by the National Eye Institute, researchers at The Johns Hopkins University reported that glaucoma is three to four times more likely to
occur in Africans than in Whites. In addition, glaucoma is six times more likely to cause blindness in Africans than in Whites.
2. True. Although glaucoma tends to run in families, a hereditary basis has not been established. If someone in your immediate family has glaucoma, you should have a comprehensive dilated eye examination every one to two years.
3. True. The early stages of open-angle glaucoma,( the most common form), usually have no warning signs. However, as the disease progresses, a person withglaucoma may notice his or her side vision gradually failing.
4. False. People with glaucoma usually do not experience pain from the disease.
5. True. Although glaucoma cannot be cured, it can usually be controlled by eyedrops or pills, conventional surgery, or laser surgery. Sometimes eye care professionals will recommend a combination of surgery and medication.
6. False. Increased eye pressure means you are at increased risk for glaucoma, but does not mean you have the disease. A person has glaucoma only if the optic nerve is damaged. If you have increased eye pressure but no damage to the optic nerve, you do not have glaucoma. Follow the advice of your doctor.
7. False. Vision loss from glaucoma is permanent. However, with early detection and treatment, the progression of vision loss can be slowed or halted, and the risk of blindness reduced.
8. False. A measurement of eye pressure, though an important part of a comprehensive eye exam, is, by itself, not sufficient for the detection of glaucoma. Glaucoma is detected most often during an eye examination through dilated pupils. Drops are put into the eyes during the exam to enlarge the pupils, which allows the eye care professional to see more of the inside of the eye to check for signs of glaucoma. A visual field test may also be performed.
9. True. An eye examination through dilated pupils is the best way to diagnose glaucoma. Individuals at increased risk for the disease should have their eyes examined through dilated pupils every one to two years by an eye care professional(preferably an ophthalmologist).
