We also had a bit of a scare with her glaucoma. The pressure in her eye was pretty high just before her laser, and so we really hit the eye drops, making sure to get them in as often as was prescribed (Reese is on 3 different ones). If the eye drops didn't work, we were looking at a daily pill to try to control her glaucoma, and if the pill didn't work...we were looking at surgery. She had 2 surgeries for glaucoma in China before she came home at 2.5 years, and thus far they have held up. They checked her pressure under anasthesia during her laser and it was in that grey area between normal and elevated. In the office a few weeks later, she was reading as normal. The doctor is content with where we're at right now. Reese has a thickened cornea and some scarring, so the doctor didn't really want to do surgery until it was absolutely necessary, and right now (and hopefully for a long time), it's just not necessary.
