Hello All,


  1. Who has Glaucoma?
  2. What Type?
  3. How long have you had it?
  4. What Treatments have you undergone?
  5. What's your prognosis?
  6. Are you still Driving?
-->Peripheral Vision is usually first affected.<--

A score under at least 70% on the D.O.T. Physical at Peripheral Vision Test (Page 3) results in additional REQUIRED Testing OR simply being done with A & B Truck Driving.

That's where I am.
Score of 55 Degrees, both Eyes, last month. In '17 score was 85 Degrees.
Started Trucking in late '98, ending '19.

I've had:
Laser Surgery
Doctors often recommend laser surgery before incisional surgery, unless the eye pressure is very high or the optic nerve is badly damaged. During laser surgery, a focused beam of light is used to treat the eye's trabecular meshwork (the eye's drainage system). This helps increase the flow of fluid out of the eye.

5 Common Glaucoma Tests:
