Glaucoma and diabetes


My last diabetic screening did not show anything unexpected but three weeks a go I went for my regular eye test at the opticians. He bas referred me to the eye clinic at the hospital as he thinks I have glaucoma which can be linked to diabetes.

Any advice would be appreciated

I was diagnosed with glaucoma at the eye clinic and put on eye drops. My pressure is usually high. At my next visit to the eye clinic a more senior opthamologist said I hadn’t got it. I had a bit of ocular hypertension but my cornea are thick which gas an affect on the puff test. Other tests do not show glaucoma. So you can treat glaucoma with eye drops and you may not have it

I have heard of a high street optician diagnosing a serious condition wonder if they do different tests
