I just wanted to clarify that I can not see with my right eye.This is the one with the major cataract of an 80 year old and the one I saw flashes, worms, & cobwebs floating around as I move it. My doctor said it was not due to a detachment and therefore prescribed Prednisolone 1% eye drops for that eye for three weeks. Thank God, none of these conditions can be seen by the general public, nor by me in the mirror.
Also, my "Good Eye" the left one, is the one that the Doctor has said has gotten much stronger and that is why he has left me with the same prescription of -1.25 for so long, and that is really great. He therefore advised me that the -2.75 that was previously prescribed by someone else was incorrect for my "Good Eye" (Left eye).
Now, my deepest concern is for my "Good Eye." The eye pressure in both eyes were taken yesterday and my doctor said both are excellent. So, why should I bother my good eye with an iridotomy, what if something goes wrong? I read of many scary side effects.
The strange thing is, I have never been told i had a narrow angle in my eyes until two days ago. Does this condition just appear? I was at the doctor's a month before when i complained about the worms (floaters) of my bad eye and at that time I was not told about my good eye having a narrow angle then. He just told me to come back in a month to reevaluate the cataract and floaters and that is when he redid the tests and told me I have narrow angle in both eyes and am also developing a cataract in the good eye.
Also, you mentioned trauma, I have never had any trauma to the good eye. However, I have been reading quite a lot and am almost 24/7 on the computer doing work till 3:00 a.m. for for the past year and a half and have lots of work related stress. So, could stress and overworking my eyes have any effect on my eye health?
It it possible that i have an ear, nose, throat infection which is pressing to upper cheeks and temples and eyes? Sinuses?
Lastly, I'm not sure if this makes any difference to the health of my good eye, but in the inner part of the sclera
there is a pinguila and the doctors say it is from too much sun exposure.
I'm extremely worried about my good eye and would appreciate any input. I am scared to have an iridotomy and something go wrong. After all, I only have one good eye.
