About 10 years ago I received a phone call from my brother. He had been diagnosed with glaucoma! No one in our family had had glaucoma. I had my eyes tested and found out that I too had glaucoma.

No one else in our family was found to have this condition, just us. The inevitable thought was, “Why us, just us two?!”

Anyway, we were both prescribed one drop in each eye every night. I can honestly say I have only missed one night in 10 years. Our father was blind, so I know how important it is to preserve sight, if at all possible.

So far, so good. My condition has not deteriorated, nor has my brother’s. I hope we continue to remain stable, sight is so precious.
