    Good morning!
    I have 54 years and I have 7 with glaucoma, in the left eye I have not lostampor visual and on the right yes, since I started it has advanced me, in the campor visual of the right eye appears in the upper left a black and gray area, I also have myopia, 7dioptrías and I went to a private doctor and advised me to operate myopia by removing the lens, because my cornea is very thin, and at the same time put a micro device for glaucoma, and if in the future I had to operate d glaucoma could be equal. The eyes I have very dry to throw drops.
    What do you think?
    I am from Salamanca and I can not move to Barcelona.
    Thank you very much!

      The problem of glaucoma with treatment of drops is that it usually causes dry eye or aggravate it in case of suffering it, as in your case. To solve myopia in these cases is better not to touch the cornea, so it is preferable intraocular surgeries with lens implantation, however, most of these surgeries fail due to the presence of dry eye. We recommend treating the dry eye first and when improvement is evident, then consider surgery.

      In these cases the treatment of dry eye is not enough with drops, it is necessary the combination of regenerative drugs of the tissues and the application of high intensity pulsed light and for this you should come to Barcelona.

      We will contact you to see if we can find a solution and help you.
