I have glaucoma and asthma. The steroid inhaler for asthma increases my IOP as noted by my ophthalmologist. My GP dismissed this as there was no contraindication which seems to be true but it was stated as a possible side-effect in the information leaflet of the steroid inhaler. By not using the steroid inhaler I get more breathless and increase the inflammation in my lungs but if I do I risk further damage to my optic nerves and mor vision loss. I have asked for advice from various glaucoma and asthma organisations but nobody has been able to help. I wonder if anybody has any suggestions? I'd be very grateful.
