treatment for glaucoma

Posted , 2 users are following.


my name is jan schuurman and i live in the netherlands.

for the last 40 years i am having severe glaucoma, my vision

is back to 8% in both eyes.

i am 69 years old and i wonder, will there be a treatment during my life time?

is there a possibility that there will be a cure?

after 40 years of eye drops and 12 operations. i hope for a stemcell treatment

how far are they with that?

thank you

    I am sorry that you went through difficult times. 12 operations and 40 years of eye drops is not easy experience.

    Can you speak more about the eye drops and op,s and which of them gave you better or worst results. Let,s hope that the promised Stem cells therapy come soon.

    Kind regards,
