Few months ago I noticed my left eye was blurry when I looked at things that are far. Went to the doctor and she prescribed glasses as I was nearsighted. 1.75. However she also mentioned that there is a bit of cupping in both eyes and to get some tests done. She measured by eye pressure at 10.
I went to another doctor (eye surgeon) immediately as I was not sure of what happened. He checked by eye pressure and it was 18. and said the cupping can be hereditary.
Did the Glaucoma tests, Visual Field test and OCT ON.
He said it was all normal and come in for annual eye pressure checks.
After I started wearing the glasses I felt tightening on my left eye. and also I read on the internet that variation of 8 for eye pressure may not be normal. I went to see the doctor again after 2 weeks. When he checked by eye pressure it was 20.... Still he said that I am a Glaucoma suspect and there is nothing that can be done and to get a test done again in 6 months. I feel very scared and feel that I do not have enough information on this.
Please help me to understand this better if there are similar cases.
