What causes optic nerve thinning OTHER THAN glaucoma?

Postby gerrell » Tue Jul 30, 2013 7:17 am

I went to an eye doctor for the routine check up and did like 8-9 tests and everything was fine....EXCEPT one thing my optic nerves. the last time I was there two years ago my eyes were 95mm and 93mm, but last week it is 93mm and 88mm. tomorrow I have to take a field vision test. I'm a hypochondriac so I googled what causes optic nerve thinning and I got glaucoma, multiple schlerosis, brain tumors....etc. now I'm TERRIFIED. I'm scared that it could be something that can be fatal, make me go blind, or put me in a wheelchair

I have glaucoma. It's not that much of a big issue if treated properly. Stay calm and be patient. Follow the advice of the doctors.
