I found out a couple weeks ago that I have glaucoma in my left eye and 30% plus of my optic nerve is damaged. I have been on spiriva for a few months now. My right eye had a retina detach about 35 years ago and healed with a blur spot in the center of the eye, Left eye is a bit dark in sight and right eye is no center vision and good perifial and left takes care if center. Started latanoprost 0.005% eye drops in left eye when glaucoma discovered. Have floater in left eye that is fairly large but looks like a water drop on the eye.Have to use regular drops during the day for dryness. My ear nose and throat doc diagnosed allergy induced asthma. 2 different docs, an allergist about 11 years ago and the e,n,t about 4 years ago. My primary, cardiologist and pulmanary docs are all saying copd. Should I stay on the spiriva?
First Heidi if you have not you need to talk to you doctors they are the only ones that can really talk to each other about your problem sometime i know that if your glucoma is under control..they can still get by but that is up to the doctor and each person is different... Many times they prescribe something and the other doctor does not know what is going on give them a call soon
