About 2006 I had to go to an optometrist because I needed reading glasses.  He sent me to an eye doctor (high eye pressure) who found nothing wrong.

About two years later I had to get new reading glasses and I went to the same optometrist.  He again referred me to an eye doctor this time to another one.  This doctor told me I have glaucoma then I went on to see this doctor a few times every year.  I started to put drops in both eyes and if the pressure went up he changed to new ones.  Twice the doctor used laser and after I used to have pain and inflammation.  I went to see another eye doctor who sent me to Eye Associates in Sydney.  I am still going there and seeing Dr Clement.  He also did my cataract operation on both eyes.  I am happy but it's a long train trip from Canberra.  I am also a member of Glaucoma Australia.

My father in Switzerland probably had glaucoma I am not 100% sure he had eye problems and died in 1999.  My oldest brother also had glaucoma but no one of my other five siblings.

At the moment I use two different drops, one in the morning and the other one morning and evening.
