Hi Everyone, I am Ricky, 30 years old and looking for suggestion from fiteyes community. In April 2022, while I had gone for a regular eye checkup, my IOP was around 20 in one eye and 24 in another. The clinic was using icare ic100 to measure pressures. My optometrist told me that I had similar pressure last year as well and suggested Visual field test and OCT. Visual field test and OCT came out clean. The OCT also had inbuilt pachymetry and my CCT was around 555. I had no damage and he classified it as ocular hypertension and glaucoma suspect and asked me to come next year. I started reading about glaucoma and decided to go visit an ophthalmologist. Ophthalmologist took my eye pressure and it was 26 and 24 using ic100 again. He dilated my eyes and looked inside with different lenses and stuff and told me my eyes were healthy and there was no damage and repeated the same thing that I was glaucoma suspect. Still anxious, I decided to get a home 2 tonometer to measure my own eye pressure. Based on the readings, every morning immediately after I wake up my eye pressure is in mid to upper 30s (as high as 39) and when I measure again after 15 mins of waking up it comes down to around 24 25 level and stays there, sometimes dropping to 20/21 in evening and staying there until I go to bed. I decided to go visit a glaucoma specialist. Glaucoma specialist again did an OCT, visual field test which came out clean and without any damage. The pachymetry this time however was from a pen shaped device and my CCT was around 585 for both eyes. Also the doctors assistant measured my pressure using Goldmann aplantation tonometre and told me my pressure as 22 and 24.However, when the GS measured my pressure again, he told me it was 16 and 18. On asking the GS, that his assistant told me it was 22 and 24 10 mins back, he said "he took it wrong, that's why I took it again". GS did see the data I had collected and said he doesn't think any treatment is required and that 30s fluctuation might only be for some time and if it would have been there for long, he would have seen any damage. Also GS saw inside my eyes, using some machine which felt very wierd. GS never dilated my eyes. GS told me the same thing that I should check every 6 months with my optometrist for pressure and 1 year for OCT. He wrote in my summary that no treatment required, pressure in normal range.
I am now not sure what should my next steps be. Should I show it to another doctor? Is it possible that because of my high CCT, home 2 readings are not right? I have never seen a reading of 16 or 18 using my icare home 2, from around 150 readings that I have taken. Also I don't wear any glasses and otherwise have good vision. My family thinks I am just anxious and have no eye issues.
