Go back and read the "charter" for MedHelp.org     We cannot practice make that kind of DX over the internet for medical legal reasons.

Thanks Doc for the reply...

***** that we cannot get opinion from seasoned doctors like you :( Pretty much kills the purpose of internet/forums :)

Anyways please guide me where to look for answers (on internet)....I want opinion from someone with GOOD knowledge regarding Glaucoma. She is not in US.

I will tell you this: Diagnosis of glaucoma, especially in the early stages, is one of the most difficult things ophthalmologists do in their practices. Often, and I've seen this a lot, very capable ophthalmologists, even glaucoma specialists, disagree on whether glaucoma is present (in the earliest stages) and who needs RX.

This is what is often necessary: personal exam, visual field, optic nerve OCT, corneal thickness test, gonioscopy, stereo disc exam, family history, fundus lens exam of optic nerve.

So don't expect any one to make a diagnosis without most or all of those tests.
