Hi, I am getting very worried, I wonder if you can help.
I am almost 55, have been shortsighted ever since secondary school age, and have had glaucoma
since I was 40. My vision progressively deteriorated over the years, but just recently worsened an awful lot. Here is how:
April 2008 righ eye: -6.25-0.50 x 150 6/12 +2.25 Left eye -5.25 - 1.00 x 175 Add + 2.25
10th June 2009 R -8.00 - 0.50 x 150 6/12 Add + 2.25 NB: Left -5.25 - .50 x 175 6/6 -1 Add +2.25 N5
14th September 2009 R -9.5 - 0.50 x 160 6/20 Add + 2.50 N10 Left: - 6.25 - 0.75 x 180 6/7.5 Add + 2.50 N5
I saw the Optitian on 14th September, he found mild nuclear sclerotic cataract in both eyes, which - according to his opinion - does not seem sufficiently developed to cause such a reduction in AV.
I am getting into a right state, fearing my sight. What can be the cause of this and what can be done? I am seeing my Eye consultant next Friday for my routine glaucoma examination. But I now feel that every moment counts.Please help
