Sorry about the technical problems...at least we are back online.
Just for your information, Moorfield's eye hospital in one of the best eye hospitals in the entire world....you will be getting state-of-the-art treatment by some of the best glaucoma doc's on the planet there.
That being said, I'm sorry to report that once vision has been lost to glaucoma (damage to the optic nerve) it can never be regained. Alcohol in moderation will not hurt things but I would avoid getting falling down drunk a lot.....That isn't good for anything, let alone glaucoma :(
There is a lot of research on glaucoma, nerve damage from glaucoma, nerve protection etc. Moorfield's probably has their pulse on the latest and greatest research being done worldwide on this topic. Right now, however, there isn't anything out there to repair damage that has already occurred.
The best thing you can do to slow the process of vision loss and even to stop it, is to use your drops as directed, don't smoke, and work with your doctors to keep your eye pressure within the target pressure set for you. The surgery you are going to have will, hopefully, lower your pressure even farther then it is right now and, perhaps, you will even be able to use less drops.
There, truly, nowhere better in the world to have your glaucoma treated then where you are right now. If I lived in the UK and not in the USA it is were I would go for my eye care
Does this make sense to you?
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
