Suggest Treatment For Optic Nerve Damage When Diagnosed With Glaucoma
Thanks for sending your query to us.
This variation in pressure is called diurnal variation.There is a battery of tests to assess present level of damage.This includes perimeter and nerve fibre assessment by gdx as well as OCT with optic nerve scan.Aling with that I presume a gonioscopy has already been done to assess if the angle is open or closed.
You have to ensure if you understand properly how to take medication,which is effective in controlling glaucoma.
It is important to have a viruses of follow up where many tests will be repeated to assess if damages have stopped progressing.
These are the basic guidelines for you to interact with your doctor.You have to understand the importance of medication,as if it doesn't work well then surgery is next option.
