I have recently had balance problems which the ENT consultant thinks may be Menieres disease, firstly they thought it was labarynthitis, just as i started to get this under cotrol my optician found that i have high pressure behind my eyes and i am told I am at high risk of closed angle Glaucoma, the Opthalmologist has said i should have Yag laser and in the meantime has given me eye drops. Is there any connection between the two? as it seems strange that both these problems should arise together. I am 64 years old and weigh just over 10 stone i am 5 ft 7 ins
