Whether : Whether or not to have surgery is entirely your decision. You must determine with your surgeon, what your current level of vision is and how much your decreased vision is affecting your ability to live your life. You surgeon should be able to give you a run down on what potential your eye has of seeing better. A cornea transplant is a major surgery that requires many post-op visits and does carry with it some risk. So, you must weigh the benefits and the risks of going through this elective procedure.

Staph : Staph aureus is a common bacteria naturally found on all of our eye lids. However, i assume you are talking about a special version of staph called mrsa. This referrs to this bacteria's resistance to many of the commonly used antibiotics today. While your symptoms do not sound serious currently, the things to look for are redness, foriegn body sensation, blurry vision or mucous discharge. Redness or lumps around the eye lids also should raise concern as well. The important thing is to keep your hands away from your eyes (no rubbing), wash your hands often and wash all of the clothes you used at the gym that day to prevent contaminating your home. At the sign of any of the above symptoms or if any concerns come up, see a qualified ophthalmologist in your area.

An : An intraocular pressure (iop) of "30"mmhg is considered high no matter what the patient's age is. There are a multitude of reasons for this elevated measurement which can vary from an inaccurate pressure measuring by the technician (which would be benign) to pediatric glaucoma (which can be serious). This should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist as soon as possible to rule out any condition. He/she may then refer you to a glaucoma specialist if necessary.
