In my eye exam with an opthalmologist in West LA last May 2012, all was perfect even the field vision test except I did have a slight change for my glasses. Then 2 months after exam, my vision started to blur a bit and still is. I started on a steriodal inhaler called Symbicort 8 months "before" the eye exam May 2012. Have you ever heard of
glaucoma just from using a steroidal inhaler when this disease did not run in the family which is my case also? And would it be best for me to see a "glaucoma specialist" this time? Do you know of one near West LA?.
It has been reported, but very unusual with inhalers. Steroids can cause glaucoma and cataracts. You should see a specialist. I can't make a personal recommendation. Your ophthalmologist would be able to assist you with a second opinion.
