    That is the problem:. there might not be any symptoms that you yourself can detect. Heart disease is called he silent killer because in the same way you might not feel anything until bang. Follow your doctors' advice!

    If none of them offered you eye drops or other treatment then have it rechecked periodically.

    Typically you will not notice symptoms. I would find out if you are a Glaucoma suspect because of your IOP ( intraocular pressure) or because of the appearance of your optic nerves. Typical IOP should be between 10-22. Some people have larger than normal optic nerves, and are usually classified glaucoma suspect. However if your nerves have always been that size then it is normal. Hope this helps. I would continue to have eye check ups every 6 months to 1 yr.
