Antiepileptic drugs and cataracts and macular degeneration
Hello @heal33. You will notice that I have included this post in the Eye Conditions Group as well to allow for others with macular degeneration to participate if interested.

@amandajro I'm scheduled for laser surgery this Wednesday, March 17, to help or alleviate high eye pressure. I'm wondering if any Mayo members have had this surgery and whether it helped. My surgeon told me there's a 4 out of 5 success rate, and if successful, no need for daily multiple eyedrops. I've had no success with eyedrops of every type, due to sensitivity, red eyes, red lids, soreness, itchiness, etc, so this is kind of a last resort suggestion by my eye specialist.
I also have loss of vision in one eye due to Giant Cell Arteritis and would love to connect with any GCA members who've experienced that.
I've had 3 previous laser surgeries for cataracts.
