What can I expect with treatment and management?

1. You can expect to hate the drops

Some of them sting and they all screw up your vision for a few minutes.

I'm guessing you've got the ordinary, garden variety wide angle glaucoma. It can be controlled with the eye drops but there is no permanent cure.

The best news is that marijuana is a last ditch treatment for glaucoma, extremely effective and fun, too. You'll have to move to a sensible state to get it, small sacrifice.

3. My husband has glaucoma

It has been well under control since using LUMIGAN eye drops -- no generics need apply! These drops cos a fortune but they work for him and no Mr. FARmaceutical Co., he won't be changing to a cheaper generic drop that may or may not work or worse yet blind him!

Also the MJ tip is a good I believe. !!
