Migraine; maybe more: With your history of migraine headache that includes left eye symptoms it makes sense for migraine to be a reasonable cause for your vision complaint. But if your vision is worsening, then you need to seek another cause, and should see an ophthalmologist who can examine for vascular conditions - and other possible conditions - that might be responsible. ...Read more

Can sinus pressure cause strobe light flashes in your eyes?

Can sinus pressure cause strobe light flashes in your eyes?

People with symptom of flashing should have an eye exam to rule out retinal problems. ...Read more

What causes RNFL thinning in glaucoma. Does controlling eye pressure stop the nerve fiber loss.

What causes RNFL thinning in glaucoma. Does controlling eye pressure stop the nerve fiber loss.

Pressure atrophy: One theory is that pressure too high for the back of the eye to withstand causes constriction of the blood flow with atrophy of the tissue (nerve fiber) supplied by that blood stream. They then atrophy and this is the basis for the thinning. Lowering the pressure below that threshold for damage prevents further blood vessel constriction and allows the remaining nerve fibers to stay healthy. ...Read more

Travatan has lowered eye pressure in glaucoma 40% but i'm very afraid of possible eye color change. Could cosopt also lower pressure 40%?

Travatan has lowered eye pressure in glaucoma 40% but i'm very afraid of possible eye color change. Could cosopt also lower pressure 40%?

Do not worry: Travatan is very effective at lowering pressure with almost no side effects, but more importantly can help prevent vision loss from glaucoma by lowering the pressure. The eye color change is rare, and might occur with long term use in people with blue eyes and a hazel center. The hazel part might appear darker or larger over a long period of time. Cosopt is ok, but has more side effects. ...Read more
