Glaucoma can occur at all ages, with early onset disease (before the age of 40) exhibiting Mendelian inheritance and adult onset forms (developing after age 40) inherited as complex traits.
While bariatric surgery was associated with fewer cases of all and sight-threatening DR, early worsening was more severe in patients with existing sight-threatening DR. These findings argue for frequent monitoring during the first postoperative year.
