Diagnosed w/glaucoma. Opthomologist said no peripheral vision loss. No optic nerve damage but the nerve tissue has thinned. How serious is that?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Early changes

This means that there has been some early damage to the optic nerve/ retina.
As long as the eye pressure is controlled over every exam you should not lose any vision. Visits to the eye doctor every 4 months is recommended.

In brief: Follow your doc's

Recommendation. Without peripheral vision loss and only some nerve tissue thinning, may be early disease or just a suspect.
