    Yes, you are in high risk of glaucoma because you spend lots of time on computer everyday. A study shows that people who spend over 9 hours on computer work everyday are more likely to get glaucoma. Besides, if you also have nearsightedness, you are more likely to get glaucoma. in addition, glaucoma is genetic. If your one of your parents have glaucoma, you are likely to get glaucoma.

    Yes, you are. For such a long period your eyes can't have a rest will certainly lead to fatigue of the ocular muscles. The circle of aqueous humor is baffled, the eye tissues cannot get enough fresh nutrient, and the intraocular pressure will always stay at a high level. Day after day the intraocular pressure will be undulant, which is the early symptom of glaucoma. So please take a break during your work.
