...and I'm scared. Age: 58. Mom had glaucoma.

I saw the optician about a week ago and my pressures were 26 and 22. He did a "mapping" test which strongly indicated glaucoma and urged me to see the Ophthalmologist asap. Wednesday I was diagnosed with "moderate" Glaucoma in one eye... Pressure at that visit was measured at 23 in both eyes. The doctor did a visual filed test, took a picture of the optic nerve and also measured my cornea. I was put on Latanoprost eye drops: 1 drop in both eyes at bedtime.

I guess I just need some moral support from others with this diagnosis.
