damn. i've never had any health problems before, but sure enough when i went to get new glasses the eye scan showed some nasty stuff. i had to take a few tests to measure my field of vision, and then i have to go back in december to take the same tests again and compare results to see if i'm losing any vision.
anyone have this? it really sucked to see the inside of my eye all damaged and stuff. i wish i had some of that medical marjuana right now.
Don't let this news get you down. With the technologies available today there so many treatment options available to you! There are many great websites out there (just do a basic google search) where you can learn more about glaucoma, get the latest research/treatment news, and talk to fellow patients. My grandfather was diagnosed with glaucoma 20 years ago. I'm not sure what his exact treatment was, but I know that he's been getting treatment and his eyesight is still doing well 20 years later. So do your research, learn all you can about the latest treatments, keep in close contact with your doctor (get a second opinion if you think it's necessary), and in general try not to be depressed, just do what you gotta do to get after this aggressively and things will work out! Best wishes.
i have been researching and don't think it'll be too bad. i have a fairly strong phobia of all things related to the eyes, so that's why i'm not looking forward to treatments. But, i know there are people with things much worse. and i have insurance so i guess i'm in a decent position.
