There is no way we can evaluate what her problem is, or determine a prognosis. She should get a second opinion from the best glaucoma ophthalmologists available. Certainly this is a very serious problem.

Go to www.aao.org and look for a cataract/IOL specialist near you or ask your personal physician for a referral.
