I have a pressure of 12 and I was given eyedrops by my doctor for potential glaucoma is that OK.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
My Doctor said the drops should strengthen my retina but I know permanent damage to the retina cannot be reversed.

First and foremost there no drops that are going to do anything to strengthen your retina.

If your doctor told you this then run, don't walk, run out of his office and find a competent, ethical ophthalmologist somewhere else.

Also, there are very few reasons why someone would be started on one glaucoma drop when their pressure is 12........

Does it happen? Rarely.....

But before I trusted this doctor to "treat" your glaucoma I would consult with a glaucoma specialist.

Does this make sense to you?

I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter. And, don’t forget, I work for tips. I would also be happy to continue to answer any more questions you have until we have resolved your concern.
