First set of results after some changes

Submitted by cormos on Sun, 10/17/2010 - 7:29am

After obtaining the Reichert 7CR and understand my eyes response to different situations, times of day and other stimuli, this first set of result is very encouraging for me after this small changes I have made.

Since I am the type of person using the left-brain, as is described in this post, as part of several tests performed simultaneously I eliminate caffeine from my diet in all its forms.

"I want to end this article by making it even more concrete for those of us who are engineering-types and those of us who may tend toward left brain thinking. Biochemically, increased intraocular pressure can, in many situations, be attributed to certain hormones such as glucocorticoids (e.g., cortisol) and the catecholamines (epinephrine/adrenaline). We may be tempted to end our investigation at this level, saying simply that increased intraocular pressure is due to increased cortisol, for example. And that can be true (at least in certain populations)".

I also know thanks to the tonometer that my pressure peak was at 19:00hs. So I move my schedule of physical activity to the evening.

As a result of these 2 actions, the general pressure go down a little more than 1mm from (18.1 to 16.8), and  the critical level at 19:00hs when down more than 2 mm and below the line 20.

Of course I'm also trying to further control of the stress level that I am exposed, which surely has a combined effect that is difficult to pinpoint.

But the important thing for me is that is working!

Thanks Fiteyes, thanks David
