Suggest treatment for high eye pressure levels
Glaucoma needs to be treated by eye drops.
Welcome to Health care magic
I am Dr. DADAPEER K, an Ophthalmologist and I will be answering your question.
I reviewed your history.
The normal intraocular pressure is around 15 mm of hg. This is directly proportional to the corneal thickness. If the thickness of the cornea is more than the intraocular pressure will be recorded high and if the thickness of the cornea is less the intraocular pressure will be recorded low. Hence we need a correction factor to be added to record the intraocular pressure if the thickness is not normal I think this will be done by your glaucoma specialist.
But an intraouclar pressure of 28 is definitely high and requires evaluation and treatment.
Cortisone or steroid in any form is known to increase the intraocular pressure. But it will come done once the effect of the drug goes off. This may take 3-4 months in case of use of long acting cortisone drugs.
Retinal specialist will be able to monitor and look for the changes of glaucoma, but I advice for one baseline evaluation by glaucoma specialist to look for all changes in detail.
Glaucoma needs to be treated by eye drops and these are associated with least side effects, hence no need to be worried about them.
Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.
you have been so wonderful. Thanks so much!!!
Increase in intraocular pressure following cortisone is common.
Thank you for the follow up question.
We commonly see this problem of elevated intraocular pressure following use of steroid drugs or steroid injection.
This elevated intraocular pressure will decrease once the effect of the cortisone or steroid injection is decreased.
Stress definitely increases intraocular pressure.
It is definitely dangerous to have increased intraocular pressure as this can damage the eyes, hence you need to treat intraocular pressure by anti glaucoma drugs.
Hope this answers your question.
