    Anyone have experience with this? The treatment is to have microscopic holes drilled into your eyeballs with laser.

    I'm having this done in a few minutes. The nurse looked at me and gave me a Valium.

    Please make a mockery of this. I'm uptight. More than usual.

    Stern related because his cunt wife has wonky eyes as well.

    Marijuana! Can you get medical marijuana in your state for glaucoma?
    The laser treatment is only temporary and will heal after a few months and you are back where you started.

    Having read up on this, medical marijuana only reduces ocular pressure every three hours or so...which could be a tremendous amount of fun, but I have to function as well.

    Still, sounds like a good adjunct treatment to me. :c

    Yep, Had some experience with this. It is a big money maker for the eye doc so they continue to do it.

    Narrow angle glaucoma. Good name for a band.

    Anyhow - I learned something today:
    • Acute narrow-angle glaucoma occurs suddenly, when the colored portion of your eye (iris) is pushed or pulled forward. This causes blockage of the drainage angle of the eye, where the trabecular meshwork allows outflow of fluids.
    Gross. :confused:

    Err... Sorry! We are with you in spirit, Dee! :)

    How long does it take to recover from this? Will your family be waiting on your hand and foot all weekend?

    Best wishes - it'll be over in no time. Thinking of you!!

    I know plenty of people who are high 24-7 on the smokey smoke and tend to function just fine

    Aww thanks.

    I haven't had the crisis you describe, but the drainage system in my eyes is so narrowed I need to have this done immediately. I'll be fine, but this waiting sucks balls. and not the good kind ;)
