I made a visit to a new doctor. I exercised before I left with my pressures around 13 on the AT555. The doctor tested my pressure around 22-23. Wasn't surpising since my pressure always seems to be high when I go to the doctor. Coming home, tested 19-20 on the AT555.
He looked at my nerves and didn't like what he saw ("looks like crap" was his exact wording), so he is sending me to a specialist. He said if he were me, he would get a trab immediately in both eyes.
I have an appointment with the specialist on Tuesday.
I have been reviewing options and the laser surgery might be a good option to go with. Has anyone had the laser surgery and what results did you have ?
I understand the results to be temporary as with the trab.
Testing my pressures in the morning, they are always 20-21 range after waking up. I can get it immediately down by exercising and the pressures are always low in the late evening - 13.
I am going to have recent pictures of the nerve compared to pictures taken on Tuesday and see if I am still losing nerve tissue.
I am fairly certain if there is loss going on currently, it is during sleep. Dave's posts on his recent successes are indeed inspiring.
Taking 5 or so AC Carbamides before I go to bed seems to make a difference of about few Hgmms lower. I was seeing 23-24 without the AC Carbamide. I may step this up to 10 a day and see if this makes a difference.
I will most likely do the laser surgery. It seems fairly non-invasive, quick and painless. If it can lower my pressures at night even for a couple of years, this may give me the time I need to totally figure out how to keep the pressure low at night.
