Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
was there any additional testing done, such as an OCT, optical coherence tomography ? Is there any family history of glaucoma?
I am not convinced she needs treatment. Alphagan P was preferred due to a neural protective effect which has gone out of style last year or two. I prefer Xalatan or Lumigan as it is the best in loweing the IOP. My suggestion is to ask for an OCT of the optic nerves, if the OCT is suspicious then I would suggest treatment. I would also get an HRT at some point and have it for baseline, the HRT often overcalls glaucoma so I dont get it for screening routinely. Dr. Stevens
