My Wife is a recent Glacoma sufferer. She was diagnosed about two years ago and put on eye drops and was monitored every six months. We thought tit was under control In the summer she felt something was wrong and we went to see the eye doctor who measured her eye pressure which was 32, he put her on more powerful drops.
She also had a cataract developing in the right eye, this was removed tow weeks ago, but her vision did not improve so we now know she has some galcoma damage. She is partially sighted in the right eye.
She describes her experience as being a bit like looking through cobwebs with some goodish patches. I have not read about this sense of "looking through cobwebs", is this really a glaucoma symptom or something different? Any advice please about whether this is a common experience of Glaucoma sufferers.
We have bought a Icare home tonometer to measure her eye pressure. We only received it yesterday and it is helping us monitor her pressure. We can see the pressure going down after taking her drops. I think home tanometers are a very useful and recommend anyone with glaucoma to have one, although they are expensive (£2,000). If we had got one when she was first diagnosed we would have known about the problem instantly and she might not have damaged her sight
