Glaucoma specialist results

I recently had a post about this topic regarding me. Went to a glaucoma specialist as a commercial puff test read 24 both eyes.

Results: VFT: pass, cornea thickness 610-608, pressure on goldmann was 16 each eye. optic nerves 'very good', I think she said cup ratio 0.44 I'm not sure what that meant. I could be mistaken as I think she was talking to herself out loud. She said ''all clear see you in a year, nothing to worry about''. But did point out a bit of my RNFL was thinner than ''the average'', as it was highlighted red, wasn't covering a big area and was only in my left eye, she insisted not to be concerned.

As for any eye conditions, I do have pretty bad solar retinopathy in my left eye which has a blind spot in my center vision.

What do you make of this? I've heard plenty of people in my situation, should I be curious or should I trust her answers and leave it be.

I'm only 21 years old.

I would stop worrying about it for a year.  And rather than talking to herself she would surely using a 'scribe' that puts what she says in the electronic medical health record.

So you think she is right and her professional opinion is safe to say things are fine?
Why are you asking me to repeat everything twice?
