I need some way of measuring my nocturnal eye pressure

measuring eye pressure while sleepingI need some way of measuring my nocturnal pressures. My daytime measurements are reasonably low most of the time, and relatively consistent. I want to start adjusting my medications (formulations, frequency, timing), but don't feel confident in doing this until I can take night time measurements.

I know this is a concern for just about everyone who has glaucoma. I'm surprised there isn't more discussion on FitEyes about how to take night time measurements, and how to interpret the data (I'm pretty sure I've read all that's there).

Calling All Side Sleepers

For those of you who have been life-long side sleepers:  is your glaucoma and hearing (for those of you who suffer from tinnitus or are hard-of-hearing in one ear) worse on the side on which you sleep?

By the same token, for those of you who sleep on your backs; is there a large or small IOP differential between your eyes?

Nothing scientific about this query; just simple curiosity.

Reading the article NOCTURNAL " the sleeping giant" by Arthur J. Sit, MD, i am always wondering when they say that investigators found the prostaglandin analogue provided good control for the entire 24-hour period... what do they mean by good...

What's good for one person is definitely not good enough for another.

Here's an other interesting article about anti glaucoma drugs
