Born with congenital cataracts in both eyes, left eye (pressure of 22) was operated on at five years of age and implanting IOL at same procedure. Vision has been stable since. Right eye (pressure of 17) still has a mildly significant cataract that is non progressive.
Anyway I’m worried about glaucoma, the left pressure seems high and while this was 10AM still higher than normally acceptable, plus the difference of 5 points is significant isn’t it? Doesn’t this point towards early glaucoma? The eye doctor said my dilated exam showed the optic nerve looked very healthy so she wasn’t worried but aren’t there more tests to be done to be sure?
For note my pressures are usually asymmetrical, most times 16-19 with the left eye always being the higher pressure at my appointments.
