To make a long story short, about 3 years ago I was diagnosed with glaucoma in my left eye. I am very young to have it and it is unusual to only have it in one eye. Over the last few years we`ve tried different treatments ranging from eye drops, to oral meds to laser treatments. None have worked effectively and as a result of the pressure in my eye being high I`ve lost the sight in my eye. The last couple appts I`ve had the Dr has stated that it is a mystery as to why I have it and why it doesn`t respond to treatments. She is concerned that there is something else going on and mentioned the possibility of a hidden tumor. As a result we have decided to remove the eye. I`m not really concerned about it, but I am wondering if anyone else has had an eye removed and if they would share their story. I`m mostly wondering about recovery time from the surgery rather than adjusting to one-eyed life. Thanks in advance.
