Probably fine: Your exam results sound ok. Are you nearsighted? The latter may make your rnf layer thinner. Your iop with your cct measurement is probably ok too. Cdr with large nerve head size seems appropriate too. I'd recommend being followed as you have just to reassure that your eyes remain healthy.
