    I started the drops for glaucoma last month. When I went for the follow up visit, my eye pressure had improved by 10%. My mother had it too.

    My grandfather went blind from glaucoma. One uncle and one aunt suffer from it as well. I have my boys checked yearly, as well as myself.

    Did you go to Wills Eye Hospital? There are locations in the tri state area. The main building is in Philadelphia.

    No, just my local eye doctor. I'll play it as it goes.

    Another glaucoma sufferer here. The rare kind. On christmas day, I was in the hospital with a migraine from hell which they treated and sent me home. ..along with a busted eye they claimed would go away. Turns out it was closed angle glaucoma.
    I was blind for 5 days til I went to a family doctor. My eyes were lasered to release pressure and prevent any more blindness but .. I still get pressure. There is partial blindness. I am a candidate for cataract surgery. currently saving $$ to pay for the prescriptive lens plus astigmatism so I can forgo the everyday glasses but i'll still have to use reading glasses.
    On eyedrops as well as you Palermo.
    And my eyes are sinking in too!!!! it's fubared. Once I had two beautiful bright grey eyes.
    Now I look like starved zombie who was dropped on the head too much.

    At least ....I can see.

    I'm sorry, sounds like you have really been through it. Yes, at least we can see.

    Whoa! I didn't realise this was so common. My BIL was diagnosed with macular degeneration a year-18 moths ago, he's in his late 40s it seems to be quite aggressive.

    Palermo thank you for sharing.

    I'm sorry so many people are dealing with this.
    My husband was diagnosed with keratoconus at 25 (corneal degeneration) thankfully, he has the option of corneal transplant and was referred for a consult for surgery right away. THankfully that doctor wasn't in his network so we went to Mayo Rochester and got very spendy, but very needed scleral contact lenses, he really needs a new pair so we're trying to figure that out.

    Don't play. Got to the ophthalmologist. Wills Eye is the 2nd best eye hospital in the USA. You're so close. Some people travel from afar to be treated.
