Customer Question

Hi, I have just developed symthoms of pressure, slight redness and watering in one eye. No discharge. My GP said they could be symthoms of glaucoma, but said referral would take weeks and recommended going to optician to check it out. Should I just go to hospital now rather than waiting?

Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

If your GP thinks you might have glaucoma then you would be better off having things checked out sooner rather than later.

That being said, the issues you are having are not really a sign of glaucoma in the vast majority of cases......

Does this make sense to you?
