It depends: A person is a glaucoma suspect for many reasons: increased cup/disc ratio, different cup/disc ratios between the two eyes, increased eye pressure, narrow angles, etc. We usually follow patients over time with repeated visual fields, rnfl tests, and clinical exams. I would make sure your sister is getting periodic exams by an ophthalmologist.
