Patient Feedback from Glaucoma Patient S


I have glaucoma, primarily in my right eye. My left eye is almost intact. about 100% And the right eye has lost about 33% of the vision, maybe a little more. If you consider my visual field as a circle, which is divided into four equal areas, the lower left part is generally gone. The upper right region is severely impaired. The two remaining regions are more or less fine. As soon as I close the left eye, or look into a certain angle, for example, to the upper right direction, then I can notice that there is a part missing. And now It is like this, (after treatment) I can see in more details, see better, especially in the far distance. I practiced and tried every day and have noticed by myself I tested it with some plates etc. that I can see better in far distance. Then I also did visual tests here, (in the Savir-Center) and then what surprised me was, that seemed I, at least for my left eye, the better eye needed new glasses. now, with my left eye, I see better without glasses than with glasses, which is incredible. In addition to that, to my worse eyes on the top right part of it, where I had, or still have, a deficit. the treatment undoubtedly brought improvements That means in this part I can see what I was unable to see before. For example, I can now read the signs that are far away without glasses, I walk around without my glasses and I can read those signs and I noticed, when I walk on the street, and sometimes I try to read the signs with my left eye close and only use the right eye, I then see that the lower left part is still missing like before, but generally, in the upper right region. I can see everything this means there is an area on the right where I could say I see it almost normally, but on the lower left side there is still the deficit, but it is obviously better on the upper left side. That means, I can walk around and move normally. also with right eye. Only the small region on the bottom is still missing, This area is still bad like before. But I didn’t expect any changes there. In the admission interview I mentioned that, I would already be happy, if the process of vision loss would be stopped, but I must confess, that I was hoping to see an improvement. It comes out that there is a 3% of improvement I haven´t even finish my treatment yet, I still have 2 days of treatment, so the result is of course great. It is amazing, And I also didn’t expect that, especially because I was told that, here might be even more progress in the future. I thought before that there will be plus or minus 0 a very small improvement. but 3% is amazing. This is the 3% with a good location, it is located exactly on the upper left. So if here is the center, it locates exactly in the center. which I permanently need. Sure, the peripheral regions it would be great if the peripheral regions also got an improvement, but I need the center part, and the center has been improved. So it is the part, where the improvement happened. If I could choose, I would have wished for an improvement in that region So it is really just there. at the place I would have hoped. I had already thought to come back in 3 months or in half a year, because there might be even more progress to be made, which I didn’t expect in the beginning. And I will come back, definitely.
