Laser Eye Surgery/Glaucoma Patient


Dear Sir,

I was diagnosed of NA Glaucoma in Nov.2005.As IOP could not be controlled with drops,YAG laser surgery was performed in Dec.2005, in BEs.
IOP remained at 14/16mmHg.
Sunsequently,I underwent Phaco in March/April 2011.Though my Powers remained unsteady,IOP reached to 12/14mmHg.
Glasses prescribed are:
D: RE:Cyl.-0.5,Axis 90 V/A:6/6 & LE:Cyl. -2.0 Axis 90,V/A:6/6
Near:Sph.+2.5,Cyl.-0.5,Axis 90,V/A:N6,LE:Sph +2.5.Cyl.-2.0,axis 90,V/A:N6.
Some scale was noticed & Nd:Yag Cap done in LE.on23.1.2013,as I had some distortion & difficulty in night vision.
On 20th May power was rechecked.
In RE Dist.Cyl.+0.75 at Axis 180 LE:Cyl:-2.0 at axis 80
Whereas Near:Sph.+2.25 Cyl:0.75 Axis 180,LE:Sph.+2.25,Cyl:-2.0 Axis 80.
Somehow with Spec.I had no difficulty in reading,but my distance vision got little Blurred in LE.
On 25th.Nov.13,CD:0.6/0.7 & IOP:14/16mm Hg ,so Ophthalmologist prescribed Latoprost RT in LE,to be instilled once at night.But my LE remained Puffy,tense & small.
Hence,now,Latoprost is discontinued since last three weeks & IOP remained at 16mmHg.
Now,VFtest will be performed for treatment plan.after comparing results with earlier VFT on 23rd.Oct.2013.
Lower Canal is blocked in RE causing infection in June & Dec.2014.
My question is why after Scale removal in LE,vision became blurred.Since watering & discharge result into Vision problem,do you think it will be cured on treatment?
Since,I am lucky so far since last 9 years,do you envisage Surgery for Glaucoma,as I am at 76.
You may kindly address both issues to subside my anxiety.
Thanks a lot dr.
With warm regards,


Thank you for your query

Thanx for the query

I PERSONALLY feel that you should repeat Visual Field test immediately now and again after 2-3 weeks and see if there is any progress, but then also i personally feel you should undergo Anti Glaucoma surgery so as to prevent this intermittent rise in your Intraocular pressures casing blurriness and other symptoms

please revert back to me if you have any additional query
