My husband was in Vietnam in 1968. He was diagnosed this year (2013) with glucoma in one eye. After seeing a specialist, he was told they were not sure it was glucoma but scarring on the nerves in the retina. I'm wondering if agent orange had something to do with this since it is a toxin and exposure to toxins can cause scarring on the body.
