An ongoing clinical trial is aimed to answer this question with more clarity.

Early stage glaucoma & moderate stage epiretinal membrane same eye not affecting vision much now. W/both diseases potential for central vision loss & peripheral vision loss causes anxiety. Prognosis?

Glaucoma with 30% optic nerve damage. No peripheral vision loss. For patient to notice peripheral vision loss, how much nerve damage must there be?

Glaucoma with 30% optic nerve damage. No peripheral vision loss.  For patient to notice peripheral vision loss, how much nerve damage must there be?

Variable: This depends upon the sensitivity of the nerves under the stress of the elevated pressure in the eye. Some will loss measurable amounts of vision at 30% damage, others require more loss to detect it. There is good adaptation so it takes a sensitive person to best detect loss. Best to get treatment and avoid any loss at all. ...Read more

The same: as they do before cataract surgery - by correcting both eyes for distance and having a progressively stronger column in the bottom of the glasses for close work. By allowing both eyes to see clearly at all distances, this should allow good vision for those activities in which the mono-vision correction is not adequate. ...Read more
