My son recently got back from a glaucoma specialist testing. He's 21, both corneas thickness of 600-610. Pressure on goldmann 16 both eyes. Passed visual field test. his doctor persisted he's 100% okay, but said one of his optic nerves is thinner than the average expectancy, this is only partly in his left eye. But said it's of no concern and to come back in a year, and to not become paranoid (like i am). What does this mean, was she correct?
we originally went there because a optometrist measured pressures of 24 both eyes on a puff test (pen). She said it isn't anything because of thickness of cornea/instrument used. but I needed to see a REAL MD to know.
