    Glaucoma and Cannabis?

    Have you guys ever tried using cannabis for medical purposes? I have been diagnosed with glaucoma for almost a year now and I've been searching any alternative medicine that can help me then i came across this article that says marijuana can be used to treat and prevent glaucoma. I've been planning to try this kind of strain here in http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/the-flav/ but i have no idea where to start or buy. Can you guys give me any tips or any ideas that can help me? Thank you!

    Dear optometric profession imposter,

    Glaucoma is a complex disease. The risk of vision loss or blindness is high if you employ DIY treatment.

    Most folks can use a moderate amount of cannabis without significant health risks, but clear that with your PCP and OMD.

    Best regards,

    Methinks the OP is not really an Optometrist.

    As per the forum rules you agreed to when you registered:


    "This forum is for Eyecare Professionals. Consumers are not allowed to post on the Board, although they can read posts and search topics."


    All the professional Opticians on this site would love to help you solve your problems or answer your questions about your eye care and eye wear need! But vision and visual solutions can have thousands of correct as well as incorrect answers.


    We care about your vision and visual needs so strongly that we must advise you to seek a professional in the eye care field. Only with in-person evaluation can you truly get a proper diagnosis. You PD and powers are simply not enough information to give you any kind of advice other than speculation. We are sure that you want the best in eye care, as we want for you. Please seek out someone that you can discuss your issues with in person.
