Hi--just to be certain, what is your full diagnosis?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I have blurred vision in my right eye and when the eye specialist examined my eye he said I had slight bleeding and the pressure in both eyes was elevated to 24. There was also a slight swelling on the optic nerve. He recommended that I use 85 mg baby aspirin once a day and 0.5%Timolol twice a day in both eyes.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 years ago.
I see. Are you asking if there is a natural cure for the disorder?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Yes is there a natural cure or is the cure only drug related.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 years ago.
Well, there are some nonprescription treatments possible, but you should discuss this with your doctor before you try them. Those include rutin, vitamin A, eyebright, ginko biloba, cayenne, bilberry, coleus, fennel, and jaborandi.
