Have black dots in eye, forming circle, parent has glaucoma. What to do?

I have a black round dot in my left eye, which sometimes i can see 2 other dots all joining by a squiggly line forming a circle. I am worried as my mother has a rare type of glaucoma which can not be treated. Iam only 23 and very scared for my eye sight if i try to focus on the dots, it will either disappear or float downwards please can a doctor give me any help?
