Is narrow open glaucoma the same as narrow angle (I'm assuming so). Yes, I think I need a second opinion.

Yes, I can see if there is evidence of a progression – I"d be all for it. But that's not the case. He has never seen me before. And this "diagnosis" has never been given to me before either. So he is saying I have narrow angles, with no glaucoma, and no benchmark to say my angles are getting better/worse/stable. And yes, when I asked he said he does them in the temporal location.
I am totally freaked out because my specialist is strongly suggesting I need an iridotomy. But after answering my questions today, I find out I have no glaucoma, but he is saying I have narrow angle glaucoma. (Hmm, I am guessing I have narrow angles with no glaucoma). I have no symptoms, no headaches, no problems with my vision, nothing. My pressure is 12/15. No change in the last 6 weeks in pressure. Given that I have no problems now with my eyes, I am pretty understandably apprehensive about getting surgery (which the doctor's office insists is not surgery but rather a "procedure").
Input please. What do you think?
