The optician repeated the test where air is puffed into the eye last week when i had a check up.
She said the reading on one eye was different to the other and this could indicate glaucoma. Will have tests at the hospital in a few weeks time, but just wondered if anyone has any experience of this please?
I have had Glaucoma tests at the hospital. They put drops in your eye to numb them. They then get a hand held probe thing and put it on your eye. It sounds much worse than it is and doesnt hurt at all. The drops to numb may sting but only for a few seconds. where I had it done they dont even take you in to another room, just had everyone sitting in an area waiting their turn.
If they use the drops to make your pupils dilate, it might be a good idea to take sunglasses with you for the journey home. Your eyes will be very sensitive to the light.
DH had the glaucoma test done at the optitions and they didn't like the results. (His nan has glaucoma) They took him into another room and did another test on him which came back fine and nothing else needed to be done.
I was sent to the hospital because my eye sight went slightly blurry and my pupils were uneven. I had a number of tests at the hospital including this one. It looked to me that everyone there seemed to go through the same tests regardless of their visit but I could be wrong. My Dad has glaucoma and cataracts so that also makes me more likely to have glaucoma apparently. I did get the all clear but I have regular eye tests. Hope all goes well for you.
