Hi

I'm facing problem of increasing eye pressure and swelling in cornea from last month. My eye is red for long time i'm not notice this have any disease. Currently i'm feeling headache and see rainbow halo around light.

Doctor give me eye drops for glaucoma and medicine but he said to me that my eye is not responding to these eye drops. I have no problem currently but in my childhood and teenage i have ear problem like otorrhea which stop and my eyesight was weak.

Kindly suggest what should i do

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your question

 

 

You should know what is the cause of this high intraocular pressure, is it open angle glaucoma or close angle glaucoma because the next treatment will depend mainly on the type of glaucoma and you shouldn't wait that much without definite treatment.

Many treatment options available for glaucoma such as lasers and surgeries but as i said the type and cause of glaucoma are very important for choosing the proper treatment.
