when you are doing what ever it is that you do. Whether it be praying, meditating, sending positive vibes or what eva.

For the last 3 years I've been considered high risk for developing glaucoma. I have to visit the eye doctor every 6 months to check the pressure of my eyes and various other tests.

Today was my latest appointment. I was informed that my status has changed from high risk to borderline and now I have to come every 3-4 months for pressure checks & the other tests.

I'm pretty upset about this whole thing because glaucoma causes blindness. My Granny had glaucoma and was legally blind for the last 30 years of her life. As you can imagine, I really don't want this to be me.

Yep, marijuana helps relieve pressure on the eyes! (Or so I've been told.)

Did they use the "puff" test? Where they put a puff of air into your eye? I always flunk that. I have "squinty" eyes.

Like this.

Good luck to keep it down or lower!

Dang, LIAG, I'm so sorry to hear that! I really don't know what to say other than my thoughts and best wishes are with you.

Look into all of the options! Medical, holistic, whatever

I'm in the 'high risk' group too. My thoughts are with you.
