Good morning, I have Glaucoma and have recently developed a back problem.
I have been told that an Inversion Table would help, but have just read that this may cause a problem with my Glaucoma, what do you think?

Cure-back-pain.org states that
people with glaucoma feel negative effects from inversion therapy, since
it obstructs the flow of fluids that circulate in the eyes, causing
pressure on the optic nerves.
Hello, an update on my experience. Saw my consultant yesterday, left eye with trab pressure 8, when I mentioned sight slighty worse and at my visit to the optician in August was told it was magnacular the consulatant said the worsening sight was not due to glaucoma??? The optician had covered the right eye then shown me a graph, using the left there are black lines diagonaly across the page??? consultant said this happens sometimes. The left eye is constantly watering so he did stringe the tear ducks and this morning it does seem a little better.
Right eye pressure 16 there is some damage but this is my seeing eye, optician said vision 20/20. Consultant wants to do a trab before condition worsens when I ask about SLT he said this was to replace eye drops and anyway they did not have the £50.000 machine in the large city in which I live, nearest 50 miles away. I'm reluctant to have another operation so he has changed Lumigan to timotol, ( wrong spelling) for a months trial. Looking at the side effects of the drops it seems to be trial and error. Hope everyone else is not as confused as me, Regards, Lavengro.
