Hello everyone I was diagnosed about 18 months ago but have just recently found this site.
I have open angled glaucoma and have been on different drops for it including lumigan which made me look like a raccoon. I finally settled on cosopt which I can tolerate but my pressures don't seem to come down much.
In January I had slt but this doesnt seem to have worked for me.
I have lost a bit of sight in my right eye and am sick with worry in case I have to have an operation.
I suffer with anxiety and get very depressed about this and never stop worrying. Have nightmares when I try to sleep.
Don't know anyone near me that has glaucoma to talk to so am hoping that someone can give me hope. Soòoo scared of going blind. I am 64
Thank you for listening.
