I am a white 43 yr.young male with no family history of any normal associated symtoms of glaucoma and right after disc surgery i lose an eye! My new doctor said that the surgery should not have been performed from the back of my neck but from the front. My pressure could have spiked and caused the flow of blood to be abnormal plus the steriod use after the surgery. Anyone else out there have a similiar result due to a surgery? My attorney would love to know!!!!!!!
