Is There Anything You Can Do To Reduce Glaucoma Eye Pressure
Was told I need surgery to reduce my eye pressure for Glaucoma. Acupuncture improved my vision and dropped the eye pressure. Is this the correct path?
In glaucoma eye pressure has reduced 30% using 1 drop of travatan. Dr says if i need a lower pressure can use slt laser instead of 2nd drop. Okay?
Glaucoma w/30% nerve damage. Pressure reduced from 30 to 15. Cornea is 516 thick. Do i add 2 points to eye pressure reading because cornea is thin?
Have open angle glaucoma in early stage. Eye drop reduced pressure to 16. Is it better to use slt as a 2nd line defense rather than 1st?
In glaucoma 20% optic nerve damage and minimal peripheral vision loss. Eye drop reduced pressure from 31 to 16. What is my prognosis?

If my eye pressure has come out to be 24, is it for sure that i have glaucoma. if yes, then how can it be treated.?

If you have no field loss, thick corneas and healthy looking discs, then you probably have nothing to worry about. Get a second opinion with an ophthalmologist to see what your status is. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
0-70: Minimum 0 mmhg when the eye is completely collapsed and too much fluid is exiting the eye for the amount made. Maximum somewhere around 70 mmhg since eventually the eye can't make any more fluid (ischemic ciliary body). With repeated injections, you may be able to make the eye pressure higher. Glaucoma is when the pressure causes retinal ganglion cell loss (a different number for everyone). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
