IOP Going Up At Night

Submitted by kmax1940 on Wed, 03/23/2011 - 2:45pm

 Have had pressure pretty much under control for over 20 yrs with drops.

Lately the pressure has been up some in my only good eye.

Especially at night.  I will use the 3 drops... then if I wake up a few hours laters the IOP is up.

Any tips on keeping it down at night?

I have been sleeping with head elevated... but I tried it both ways and it does not seem to make much of a difference either way.

Best Glaucoma Center In the Country (USA)

 Hello, is there a general consensus about what the best glaucoma hospital / center in the country is?  I have one good eye and the pressures are now going up in that one... I am not happy with the specialists here in Alabama and am thinking about looking elsewhere.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

I have congenital glaucoma.  IOP is going up at night.  I can wake up just 4 hours after using 3 drops and see rainbows.
Then after staying up just a few minutes it goes back down....
