Blindness/Visual Impairment/Glaucoma Treatment


I have had a severely cupped optical nerve all my life.  Normal pressure.  Normal visual field.  Now, at age 63, I have been referred to a retinal specialist who tells me I have glaucoma.  Visual field tests show slight change.  Pressure is 22.  I have been on 6 different drops; presently: Travatan Z, Cosopt, and Alphagan.  Nothing seems to bring the pressure any lower than 20.  Specialist says I am not a candidate for surgery. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.  I am beginning to wonder if I really have glaucoma or if this pressure reading could be "my normal."  Thank you.

YOU HAVE NOT MENTIONED WHAT IS QUANTITY OF YOUR VISION AND is your vision deteriorating over the period of time, i personally feel you should undergo surgery because that will give you better control of eye pressure with less number of eye drops, please let me knwo your vision
