Progression with glaucoma is very variable, and cannot be predicted for sure. However, you are very young, and have a long life span, so you must be controlled at a consistently low eye pressure. This means faithfully taking the drops every day and following up with your ophthalmologist on a regular basis. I would also see a glaucoma specialist. You need a pachymetry (measurement of your corneal thickness), as well as intraocular pressure measurements and visual fields. Optic nerve imaging such as OCT can be helpful for following your status. Your eye pressure needs to be lowered by at least 30% from baseline to protect the optic nerves from further damage, based on a national study of normal pressure glaucoma.
Thank you for answering!
I see a glaucoma specialist and have had all tests done. Pics. Visual field. Pachymetry. That's how they determined nerve damage and loss of peripheral vision.
He said they would have to treat me aggressively since I already have low pressures.
So, even with treatment, does glaucoma progress still?
