Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with additional services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
Do you know what your "cup to disk ratio" is in each eye?
Do you have a copy of your latest visual fields?
Is your ophthalmologist considering doing a trabeculectomy?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
How old are you?
Sounds like you should go with the trabeculectomy.
Before doing so, however, it would probably be good idea to see a glaucoma specialist for a second opinion and treatment plan.
Glaucoma is a blinding, irreversible disease...nothing to mess around with while you "think about it".
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
