Hashimotos and Glaucoma

Hi, so today I went for my regular eye visit with someone else. Not my regular doc.  When I asked about my dryness she said it was normal for Hashimoto people, and she said my eyes look healthy. So she ended up putting  those drops on my eyes to get a clearer view. Well when we are half way through she asks do you have any relatives who have glaucoma, I asked why. She told me one nerve is bigger than the other.... I’m like no one that I know off has that. She told me to come back to do further testing till End of January.... I’m 22 .... has anyone has this problem at a young age?
