    Generally speaking, glaucoma will cause retinal detachment. And you should know that there are many other factors which can lead to retinal detachment, such as eye injury, severe high blood pressure. But on the other hand, most people with detached retina risk factors will not develop a detached retina. So you should not worry about it too much.
