I'm Emmanuel by name, from Nigeria. I was searching through the internet with reference to Glaucoma when I came across this forum.
I have a 68year old mother who has glaucoma. Optometrist we met for diagnosis authenticated that yes she has the disease. Last medical check we did at a different eye clinic 8th December 2016, showed that the pressure rate of her left eye was 44 and right eye was 45, which happens to be way above normal. Blood pressure reading was 110/70, sugar level was 106.
Optometrist with no form of sympathy in his speech, plainly and clearly told my mom she would go blind, and those words made my old mom burst into and uncontrollable tears, she cried bitterly. I had to console her, watching as the tears flowed from my old mother's eyes broke me down completely, but had to hold up my own tears.
Just yesterday at a visit to an eye clinic, it was discovered that her left eye was gone, she only sees with it by the side and not straightways.
Experts in the treatment of glaucoma, permit me to ask that with her above diagnosis, what would you recommend to help lower her IOP and save her remaining vision?
She currently uses Bimopress eye drops and Optic nerve tablets.
Do have a great day while I kindly await prompt responses.
Happy New Year all.
God bless you all.
