I recently been diagnosed with glaucoma , I’m a 50 year old female with a family history of glaucoma ( my maternal grandmother) within 2 weeks I have undergone 2 unsuccessful laser treatments , an awful rise in eye pressure 54 in one and 37 in the other , I had so much pain and sickness I actually thought I had something worse happening to me , I hadn’t been told that this diagnosis could cause these symptoms. I have just had another laser treatment which so far they say was satisfactory ! Whatever that means . Does anyone on here have any information for me that can put my mind at rest . For instance how do I know when my pressure is rising ? How do I make it clear to A&E check in staff that it is vitally important I’m not waiting for 2 1/2 with such high pressure ?
I await some hopefully comforting information
