I am a 30 year old male suffering from glaucoma since the last two years. I have heaviness and itching in my eyes. Please guide me on what to do.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I need a few answers from you, before deciding on the reasons for heaviness or itching.
Can you please give the details for the following questions?
Itching can be because of specific anti-glaucoma medications.
I need to know the eye pressure to decide whether your current heaviness is due to the anti-glaucoma medications.
This is to decide whether we need to change or continue the medication or decide on any other modalities of eye pressure control in relation to the severity of glaucoma.
