My first signs of glaucoma were noticed by an optometrist in 1991, who recommended a visit to an eye specialist, and my glaucoma has been monitored ever since.
I have had 2 or 3 lots of laser treatment which lowered the pressure, and my pressures also dropped after an operation on cataracts.
My eye specialist says we are fortunate to have kept my glaucoma under control for so many years.
Thank goodness it is only my peripheral vision that is impaired. It has been recommended that I do not drive, which is frustrating but understandable.
