A couple of years ago my husband had an eye exam. The doctor told him he had a condition that put pressure on the eye. Not glacoma, but it sounded something like "Kirkenbach Spiral". I am trying to find some information on it. I know I must not be anywhere close to the spelling. Can anyone help?

  • I have never heard of this disease, sorry. I have had the eye pressure tests and come out positive, but no glaucoma. I have very thick corneas which cause a false pressure reading.What symptoms does your husband have or can you tell us what your concern is exactly?
