My iop is 21-21 goldman ton.
And my cct =614-610.
is it normal for me? (26 years old) glaucoma
Not to worry: These are not pathologic numbers and the cct is somewhat protective. I am guessing you had an evaluation with this detail because there is glaucoma in your family. It is reasonable every two years or so to have your iop checked because 21 is the upper limits of normal, but please don't lose any sleep over this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why does my 9y/o girl w/severe autism eat her feces? Aggressive, non-verbal but sweet/affectionate. She digs in pants. SIB/tantrums/sensory/no MR/meds
Bizzarre behavior: This may be a self soothing mechanism like rocking, other consoling mechanisms. Her severe autism leaves her without the normal social negative reinforcement of neurotypcal kids, meaning, she doesn't have the social awareness to remind her to stop the behavior. You may have some degree of success with social skills training with a therapist. Never spank her. Positive reinforcement works best! ...Read more

Using the eyes visually for any task has essentially no effect on these variables. On the other hand, intensive near visual work and computer use can lead to eyestrain and dry eye symptoms. ...Read more

The hair you see "on" so called celebrities more likely than not take HOURS of PROFESSIONAL work to obtain and "last" ONLY as LONG as the appearance or performance!! Just avoid such idiocies as FREQUENT BRUSHING which only causes premature hair loss! Z ...Read more
