    Dog Eye Health

    Can anyone tell me what they know about glaucoma? Our family has a husky that has been closing his eye and is dealing with optic nerve pain. They are thinking about removing his eye. We are looking to a cannabis oil protocol for pain and inflammation.

    General confusion about Eye Pressure and Glaucoma

    About a year ago, my opthalmologist diagnosed me with high intraocular pressure, with no optic nerve damage. I was put on a couple of daily drops which have kept my pressure in the normal range. The literature for these drops says they treat glaucoma. So, my question is, if I have no vision loss or nerve damage, and only high pressure, do I have glaucoma, or do I just have a condition that could potentially lead to glaucoma? Thank you.

    Eye Surgery

    About 8 years ago, a friend received a free eye exam via a charity organization. The doctor indicated that the optic nerve was pale and there was something behind the eye and that MRIs of the brain and orbit wwo was required because brain tumor, stroke, etc. were likely. MRIs at that time were out of range; however, a 2nd doctor recommended blood tests to rule out Giant Cell Arteritis which was done and proved negative. Current day: Friend now has insurance. One eye is blind. The other apparently....

    Glaucoma and blood pressure medication

    I understand there is little relationship between blood pressure and eye pressure (a glaucoma risk factor). However, too low a blood pressure reduces the flow of nutients to the eye, which in turn may raise the risk for glaucoma. I am taking blood pressure medication (5mg Amlodipine daily) for pre-hypertension. If I am diagnosed with glaucoma, is it more helpful (for protecting vision) to reduce my blood pressure medication if I am only prehypertensive?

    Glaucoma

    I've had about 7 or 8 surgeries both for glaucoma and corneal dystrophy. I have bi-lateral trabulectomy and recently suffered an accident while mowing my lawn. A gust of wind sent debris into the left eye, with abrasion of the cornea, iris and totally destroying the bleb. Had reconstruction surgery for the bleb and the abrasion healed with antibiotics. I had a "bridge" over the bleb site with a graft. All is well, vision is restored. FYI I now wear swim goggles when cutting grass.

    Glaucoma and Dry AMD

    I had been diagnosed above problems in the early stages for the last about 2.5 years when I went to the Ophthalmologist for normal check up of my eyes.Still there is no appreciable deterioration of my above problems. Since the beginning, I have been using Glaucoma eye drops Travatan once a day and Azopt twice a day. Recently I was advised by a friend to start taking Flax Seed meal Powder for my abdomen problems. I like to know if Flax Seed Powder will have better or bad effect on my eye problems....

    Light Therapy and Eye Conditions

    Hello. I have a light therapy box that I use to treat depression. It has a UV filter that blocks 99.3 percent of UV light. Do you think that it could cause cataracts or a serious eye condition if I use it for many years? Thank you.

    Glaucomo and receding eyelid in one eye

    In Oct 2017, after visiting my opthamolgist because of an unusual feeling in my left eye, I was diagnosed with dry eye and prescribed Restasis. Within 2 days of Restaisis my left eye opened very wide. My opthamologist erroneously suggested a neurological problem. I went to Emory University Hospital Opthamology for a second opinion and learned I have glaucoma in my left eye only, but they could not explain the receding eyelid, since my blood thyroid level is normal. Over the past 5 months, at Emory....

    Big vision change...what does it mean?

    There's a few boards I could have posted this on, but this one seems to make the most sense. I think I just feel like talking and getting it out. If anyone would like to respond, though, it would be most appreciated! Four years ago, I had a retinal detachment in my left eye that was successfully treated through surgery. Thing were going along fine, eye-wise, until last year when my optometrist diagnosed me with high eye pressure, which is a risk factor for glaucoma (which runs a bit on my mom's....
