My wife, who was diagnosed with normal-tension glaucoma several years ago and recently informed that she would in all likelihood have to undergo trabeculectomies (a fancy word for cutting a hole in your eye)
because the drops which usually succeed in controlling pressure weren’t, has just learned that her numbers have improved significantly. She’s a 10!
This will have to be double-checked in the spring, along with regular visual fields tests to ensure blind spots aren’t sneaking in
but it’s still news worth buying a round for the house
