i learnt they are good. You could give it a trial

Good Day Dr.

Hope your doing fine?

Update...

I later settled for Florida eye clinic Abuja. We met with the pediatric opthalmologist who carried out some tests on him and said he has defects on the two eyes and he's equally long sighted. He finally advised at this age and stage, glasses are the best option. He ran some tests again and said he will be needing 6.something bla bla...

Just like u said, he said it's still very much treatable at his age, that the glasses are correctional and that once he has them on then the eyes won't turn again which will further help in strengthening the muscles.
He gave me his WhatsApp number and said the child should be snapped and sent to him while using glasses, depending on what he sees, he will schedule another meeting.

Finally, the cost was within range; frame, lenses, consultation etc all amounted to 33,500

hello Doc,

Last week Friday I took the step for another opinion. meanwhile I stopped taking the eye drop and drug on Wednesday to clear out of my system.
the Optometrist I saw on Friday did eye pressure test, he got 17 and 18 for the 2 eyes and said it is normal but he said we have to bear in mind that I was taking drop till Wednesday and the day was Friday. he told me to come back on Thursday for a new eye pressure test. he said the cup size is within normal and not enough to diagnose glaucoma but he said we should chill till Thursday. so I have stop taking drugs and eye drop since Wednesday, just PCM for pain. the doctor even said my vision is 100% there which I confirmed. just the blurriness and slight headache sometimes.

but within yesterday and today, one eye started closing compare to the other. attached is the picture. not painful but the discomfort is too much. I am beginning to develop fever.
hi desaie how re you doing ? How's your treatment going ? Hope there re improvements ?

Good morning all,
I got hit in my left eye by a ball yesterday morning, Due to pains and because I couldn't open it properly, I bought eye drop immediately, use it and slept.
After like two hours, I woke up and I am able to open it a little bit but I notice something like a flash in my sight and also in the dark I couldn't see anything with the same eye, this morning also I notice there is blur in the same eye vision.
Pls any remedy or solution I could use
Thanks in advance

A pharmacist recommended Visiongain oral medicine where i bought the Betaxolol. I started using the Betaxolol eye drop 3 days ago. Should i buy the visiongain?

well if you can afford those suppliments, they are good as they are rich in antioxidants which offers some protection to the optic nerves in the eye and reduces the chances of damage to the nerves . Go for them if you can afford them. Note: u still have to continue applying your eyedrop as the suppliment isn't a substitute for the eye drop.

And what are the dos and donts of Glaucoma pateints. e.g what to eat what i shouldn't eat and i heard some body posture increases pressure within the eyes too.

there are no particular rules. The only rule clinically significant in management of glaucoma, is applying your eye drops appropriately as recommended and adhering to your follow up appointments in monitoring if there's progression of the disease. The other rules like posture altering the eye pressure , certain foods and all that do not impact on management outcome of the disease so re not of much essence except in theory

Is a drop ok or should i apply two drops to each eye whenever i administer the Betaxolol? The doctor didn't tell me how many drop i should apply but he told me to use it twice daily, morning and evening. And i was told to buy another after exhausting the current one

yes of course . Diabetes affects your eyes in many ways. While managing diabetes, it is important you see an eye doc to examine your eyes as diabetes could have a devastating effect on your eyes and u could even cause one to go blind

you cannot manage it yourself. Go see your eye doc for an exam first. He/she would tell you how to go about it based on clinical findings
