Hi Deborah – I've dealt with Glaucoma for 37 years, and my experience tells me that you definitely need to seek a second opinion. I can't comment on your current ophthamologist; however, your pressures are high. Also, "just buying OTC eye drops" is not a good answer. Most OTC eye drops have preservatives in them, which further the eyes being dry. I've worked with a Dry Eye Specialist, and there are many things to do to deal with dry eyes – and it sounds like yours are severely dry. Please do not let these issues go on without prompt attention. You were right to trust your gut in sensing that your current ophthamologist might not be the best for you. Let us know how you are doing! Sue
