I have a database of over 13,000 intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements and much of my medical history related to pigmentary glaucoma is available online now.

The extensive IOP data raises many questions that modern medicine doesn't have good answers for - such as the question of whether stress increases IOP. The conventional answer is that it does not. My data indicates that it does.

My case history online includes:
*visual field test results (Humphrey and Dicon)
*GDx optic nerve fiber analysis
*Heidelberg retinal tomography (HRT)
*Fundus photos (pictures of my retina)
*summary of daily IOP from world's largest IOP database for a PDS patient
*summaries of my discussions with my doctors
*my personal story
*more

There is discussion of my experiences with conventional as well as alternative medicine.

If you are interested in eye health, I would like to hear your opinion.

Dave
