Yip I’ve got it. It can be treated with drops if you catch it early enough. Mine has turned into glaucoma which I now have an implant in my eye to control the pressure
My dad has it and lost his vision
Had it 15 years and take latanoprost drops daily. No problems since diagnosis and pressure is steady


See your gp who will get you a consultant appointment for a full proper examination

Hubby diagnosed about 18 months ago (via Specsavers) had laser treatment in both eyes to relieve pressure and now has 1 drop of latanoprost in each eye at bed time.
Consultant pleased with last pressure test and will now get tested yearly.
If you get prescribed only 1.5ml latanoprost, ask your GP for a 3 monthly prescription, so 3 x1.5ml botttles for £9 rather than £9 per month (if that makes sense).

I always ask for 6 months which is always fulfilled. Last month, they gave me 9 months worth.
