Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you for the reply and additional information.
You are maximum topical anti glaucoma treatment currently. However a single high IOP would not be of much concern. What is more important is the consistent IOP, effect on the optic nerve head and corresponding visual field defects ( perimetry). Bleeding in both eye in those with diabetes is more likely to be a description of small bleeds in the retina as in non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Probably that is why she did not seem very concerned. A good control of blood sugar levels as reflected in HbA1c levels below 6 is beneficial in a long way. A Carotid Doppler is usually asked for when there is a suspicion of blood vessel occlusion. A reduced flow in this blood vessel would directly reflect in the eye with reduced flow in the eye too. Again treatment is aimed at better control of blood sugars and blood pressure.
Does that address your concerns? Do let me know if there is anything else you would like to ask in this regard.
Thank you and best wishes.
