... I was diagnoised with Corneal Ulcers, both eyes. I am legally blind in my right eye but I have 20/20 vision, with glasses in my right eye. I am 63 years old and I have problems and pain in the spring and fall as allergens effect my ulcers. I have weakened cornea's due to the TB. This year I was diagnoised with Glaucoma. What is next for me?
I had TB undiagnoised as an infant. When I was 10 or 11 I had trouble with my eyes. When I was 13?

Yes, look on the bright side. There is always a rainbow and maybe I'll die before I get full blown Glaucoma. I really wanted some advice. I am not negative about this. I dont look on the dark side, but I am intelligent enough to know that this diagnosis isnt good.
I got TB from my father as an infant. He didnt know he had it and my folks didnt know I had it. The TB hurt my Cornea's and also my hips. Both are dislocated and no one knew that either until I was 4 years old and too old for surgery. One hip has no ball and the other has no socket they made their own and I am ambulatory and upright but do occassionally walk with a cane. I have lived with these health issue all of my life. I am still upbeat. I am a retired Social Worker and I worked most of my life. I have three children and 6 grandchildren. I have severe arthris in both hips and have had 2 back surgeries. I live with it. But my question is what happens when and if the glaucoma gets worse and with age I am sure it will. Anyone have any suggestions. I would appreciate some concrete advice. Amy
