Ah! We have glaucoma in the family - Aunty B in Wales has it quite badly for years and years but the treatment has been very good and she's still able to use her mobile phone, computer and camera at 88 years old. Pa has it too - he lost the sight in one eye due to a stroke but the pressure in that eye is very high. However the prescribed medication for it nearly killed him as it shouldn't be taken with some other medication he was on. That was 5 years ago - he pulled through and still reads his newspaper every day - he'll be 95 in March.
If your eyes are painful that should be dealt with at the hospital. I take it that you do tell them how painful it is? Sometimes men just put up with things when they should be telling the medics.
