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. ...Read more

Ms. After 1 yr using interferon, my right eye lost 20% sight. Like seeing clouds. My md said that this is common and it will be cured on it's own.

Get second opinion: Sorry, but you are using a medication which lacks efficacy. You likely have had optic neuritis, and due to ineffective treatment, you probably have persistent damage to the optic nerve (but cannot exclude retinal problem as other explanation) You cannot sit still and wait and hope with MS, as it is indeed a BAD disease. Get a physician who specializes in MS, and use a potent medication. ...Read more
