I went for my eye exam yesterday. I was feeling great because the doc told me that the macular of my eye is healthy (my mom and her mom have/had macular degeneration and lost most of their sight). Then doc says, 'I need to talk to you about something...). She said that I have 'narrow angles' (where the fluid drains from the inner eye through where the cornea and iris meet) and that this could lead to one of the worst kind of glaucoma. I did not have this last year or she missed it. Needless to say, I am very upset. She referred me to a retina/vitreous specialist. She did not diagnose glaucoma --just narrow angles. My pressures on the actual glaucoma test where within healthy/normal ranges. Another thing that age brings on. She said that after the specialist she referred me to is done with the evaluation, I may need to have laser surgery to put a small whole in the iris of my eye to allow the fluid to drain and the internal eye pressure to lower. I've already decided that I won't hang around if I am going to go blind, Just when you think it can't get any worse--needless to say my anxiety is through the roof.
