was to eye doc about four years ago, they told me that had had glaucoma. I never went back, that is until last Thursday...my head felt like it could explode from the pressure behind both eyes. There have been moments of blurred vision,loss of appetite, a lil lightheaded, can't concentrate very easily. When was in the car on the way n we were stopped at a light it felt as if we were still moving, don't sleep very well, and of course my favorite thing to do is read, it is almost impossible for very long. Lights hurt my eyes especially coming from dark to light. Advil, aleeve, Butterbur(natural remedy) don't even touch it.

Ophthalmologist only said i have really farsightedness and cant remember the word but its like building something name.... any way he basically said nothing wrong but wants to c me back in 6 months - isn't it a yearly exam/

am I going blind? am too worried or freaked, just want some answers what is going on. there is a history of cataract/glaucoma in family. I go c another ophthalmologist n morning. this will be the third one, I just want some sort of answers... can you shed any light to what might be going on/ I am a 43yr old female with R.A. for 19yrs. any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
