    Damn that sucks. I guess the surgery didn't do what you hoped?

    I went to the eye doctor for the first time this year and he told me that the pressure in my eyes is too high. He said that I need to come back yearly so that they can keep a watch on it. Since I have never had an eye exam before it may be normal for me though.


    Kind of scary anyway. :(

    high pressure is an early indicator of glaucoma. the pressure causes the occular nerve to atrophy causing glaucoma. go to a opthomologist and take this seriously. i am 38 years old and have to put 8 drops a day in my eyes.

    It was an opthomologist that I went to and yeah that's what he told me. He said that I don't have glaucoma now but he wants to keep and eye on it.
