My eye surgeon had told me that typically after cataract surgery IOP is lower about 4 points.
However its now 4 months after I had cataract surgery on my right eye and the IOP result in my last few eye doctor visits over the last couple months have remained close to what it was prior to the surgery.
I still am taking the same two eye drop medications in my right eye as I have for the past 3 years: Lumigan and Dorzolamide-Timilol (combo drop). I'm getting 15-16 typically for IOP in my right eye with the medications measured with the blue light, and about 18 with a simple air puff test since I have thicker than average cornea.
I have had a complete dilated eye exam, eye photos, visual field test, and an OCT all done over the past couple months with my comprehensive ophthalmologist. The glaucoma in my right eye has been stable for the past 3 years with the eyedrops. My right eye only has the defect in one quadrant shown on the VFT as the nasal superior quadrant.
About how long after cataract surgery should significant IOP lowering be noticeable and if not seen by then is the chances high that IOP will not lower anymore due to that?
