I went to the ophthalmologist this morning and got some good news. It took some tinkering around with different medications, but my glaucoma is under control and the pressure in my eyes is back down where it's supposed to be. I'm not crazy about the idea of using eye drops three times a day for the rest of my life, but it's a lot better losing my sight. Evidently the treatment of choice these days for glaucoma is laser surgery, but my doctor has said from the first that I'm not a good candidate for it because my eyes are made a little goofy inside. That's what the technical terms boil down to, anyway. But goofy eyes or not, I can still see, and I'm happy about that.
