glucosamine chondroitin and intraocular pressure

glucosamine chondroitin and intraocular pressure

Author’s Note:  I have been practicing self-tonometry now for about three weeks with a Reichert 7 NCT.

For the past 9 years, I have been supplementing with glucosamine chondroitin to ward off joint issues due to an intense daily exercise regimen.  I’ll never know for sure whether this supplement works as advertised since I began taking it as a preventative measure and to this day do not suffer from joint pain.  However, when I read recently on the internet that chondroitin can possibly make matters worse for glaucoma patients, I dropped the supplement overnight and did not wean myself off it.  This action may have led to the unintended result which I describe below.
