I'm really sorry. My mother is battling the same kinds of glaucoma problems albeit she is in her 60s and recently had surgery.

As some have said, Marijuana actually does help problems like this although you may be against drugs.

I will most definitely throw a few prayers up for you LiaG, consider it done...

As it was said before, a little herb is proven to ease the symptoms of glaucoma. I consider my use as preventive medicine...

I'll cut out SLJ's eyes and give them to you, he doesn't need them.

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!


He's a good looking old man.

They used to do the puff test but these days they use the other one on me because it's more accurate, it the one where they actually stick the blue thing on your eyeball. It's much worse than the puff test, but tolerable since I stick my finger in my eyes everyday putting my contacts in.


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've been doing some research on holistic options since I'm not diagnosed with it yet. I'll be talking about it with my acupuncturist at my next appt.


And for all of you who suggested the "other" holistic approach, ;) it does reduce pressure but not as much as you might think it would. I've already been looking in to it. I actually read in one place that you'd pretty much have to smoke it nonstop for it to produce the effect of pressure reduction. And apparently it works with all hemp.
There is more to glaucoma than just reducing eye pressure although once you have it controlling pressure is the key to preventing it from getting worse.

I heard you can cook it into baked goods and get a stronger and less obstrusive effect on your lungs...:)
