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.
