Yes: There are some schools of thought that believe that microvascular disease such as vein occlusions and diabetes have an increased risk of getting neovascular glaucoma. Also, cystoid macular edema can happen in these subgroup of patients.

Not currently: Drusen is a clinical finding that can put you at risk of developing macular degeneration. The current treatment can include vitamin supplementation, currently there is no treatment for drusen but there are clinical trials in the works now looking at laser, injections, and systemic medications to treat dry macular degeneration. Hopefully they will pan out.

Hereditary condition: It is a complex combination of hereditary conditions that affect the photoreceptors. Its a degenerative process that can be caused by a number of mutations and depending on the type, vision loss can begin as early as soon after birth to as late as in your middle age. Sometimes vision loss can be mild enough that you may not realize you have it.
