Question

 

 

Hi,

I did a routine eye test and my cup disc ratio was 0.8 for both eyes, intraocular pressure was about 14 mmHg for both eyes as well. 

Attached are my CVF and OCT results.

Please, do I have glaucoma?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

You have normal thickness of NFL on OCT for both eyes and also you have Normal visual fields for both eyes.

The Cup / Disc ratio for the right eye is 0.6 and for left eye is 0.7 and both are normal for you and it is called physiological cup.

I don't think you need to take any eye drops for glaucoma as your intraocular pressure are within normal limit and also your NFL OCT and Visual Fields are all normal.

I think you should discuss this issue with your eye doctor.
