Glaucoma Association Forum

Our forum is moving!

Our current forum will close on 29 June.

As we are soon to become Glaucoma UK, we are excited to announce our new website forum will be moving to the world’s largest online support network- HealthUnlocked. We have our own community, currently International Glaucoma Association. People with questions or comments about glaucoma and related topics can post them on the site. Much like on our existing forum, people can respond and our staff will moderate responses. However, there are more things we can do with this site compared to the existing forum – we can post surveys or tell you about events and you can make friends with other members of the community. One big advantage of using an external site like HealthUnlocked is that they take care of spam or other junk posts. That means we can focus on getting the right information to you. You can also join communities linked to other conditions or topics.

Simply register here healthunlocked.com and join our community by typing International Glaucoma Association in the search bar, then click on “Community” you can then add yourself to our page. If you have already registered, then just click here healthunlocked.com/iga-uk to join.

You can still post to this forum as normal until 29 June. However, you may find HealthUnlocked a better experience – why not try it today? If you need any help with signing up, please contact our helpline on 01233 64 81 70 or sightline@iga.org.uk.

Has anyone got any reassuring words for me? I've just been told my eye pressures are worrying (Left eye 28 and right eye 30) and that I need to see a specialist. I haven't got any eye damage or loss of visual field but I realise that this could eventually happen. I am very frightened and am hoping there are people out there who know about this or have experienced this and can put my mind at rest a bit that it can be treated and that I am not going to lose my sight. HELP!!!!

The pressure in one of my eyes was 59 at one point just over 3 years ago... and I can still see out of it. Admittedly there is some damage, and I can't see as well out of it as my other eye, but it was always my weaker eye anyway, so it doesn't bother me much. My point though, is that your pressures aren't obscenely high, and as your visual field is fine at the moment, I think the problem has been caught in time and you'll be fine. When do you see the specialist?
