December 2005 IOP At Elevation

Submitted by dave on Fri, 12/30/2005 - 11:00am

This eye exam was performed at an elevation of about 8000 feet using Goldman tonometry. At 8000 feet elevation, normal intraocular pressures are about 21, I'm told.

My IOP values are:

Left 19; Right 17

I'm not completely sure, but it seems like the downward trend in my IOP is continuing. This is also the first time my right IOP has been lower than the left. I'm also on vacation, and that might have something to do with the IOP values.

Two Weeks After My 'Record High' IOP

I have been using Xalatan for two weeks. Today I returned for a follow-up visit with my primary ophthalmologist. At the last visit, my IOP values were:

Left 34; Right 48

Today's IOP values (using Goldman Tonometry) were:

Left 21; Right 22

I also received a diagnosis:

Pigmentary glaucoma (noted Krukenberg's spindle); scotoma (an area of decreased or loss of vision).
