    My wife, having fought excessive pressure in her left eye for years, is now facing surgery to relieve the pressure. She has, at age 56, lost 50% of her vision in the past week. She is scheduled for out patient surgery this afternoon. We are keeping our fingers crossed for a positive outcome. I can think of no worse affirmity than the loss of one's sight.

    Any comments or suggestions from those who have had to deal with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Noel our prayers are with you and your wife. My Father just had Glaucoma surgery, they put a stint in behind his eye to releive the pressure. He was in a similar situation but his sight came back and now his pressure is down lower than it has been in years. They have made many advances with this surgery. Hope all goes well, keep us posted.

    Best Regards,
    Brent Huber
