Update. Saw retina doc and cataract surgeon today. IOP was 32 (on Friday, the 20 was by a tech and likely wrong), so today I begin my post-op decrease of prednisolone from qid to bid, then qd. Optic nerve intact. In 3 weeks if pressure is high, he'll add a new drop. OK to SCUBA in October ! Got someone else to continue depostion - no more ocular migrainea

That is excellent news. :)

Dr. Rick :

A few weeks of 32 IOP shouldn't hurt anything since your optic nerve looks good.
