Hi there. I was diagnosed with glaucoma the beginning of the year. I am a white Caucasian male. 24 years of age. The doctor says I have low tension glaucoma. And pigmentary dispression. Possibly pigmentary glaucoma. He did the in office laser on both eyes. Also the visual field test came out normal and no vision lost. He says my corneas are very very thin.
My question is would a cornea transplant help with glaucoma? Meaning would a thicker cornea be able to hold a higher pressure? Also I have tried googling about this disease and getting mixed responses.
Has any one been diagnosed at a young age like me? And managed to keep there eye sight well into an adult life? I am very worried for my future any advice or personal story's would be great fully appreciated.
