My First Visual Field Tests

Submitted by dave on Wed, 09/08/2004 - 11:29am


I'm posting my visual field test results. This was the first time I've had a visual field test done and I did not enjoy it at all. The test is a bit long (about 10 minutes per eye) and boring, but the worst part is that the test reminds me how much damage has been done to my optic nerve. During the test, when I don't see any lights for a long time with my right eye, I know I'm not performing well. It's just no fun. However, I shouldn't complain because the test is not painful at all and there are a lot worse things I could have to suffer though than this!

Two Weeks After My 'Record High' IOP

Submitted by dave on Tue, 09/07/2004 - 11:00am

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).
