Had glaucoma but it's cured, are protein powders dangerous?
I'm wanting to work out and get a little bigger, so of course I'd set my sights on protein supplements. Problem is, I had glaucoma as a child. It's cured and gone now, but at one of my checkups years ago I continue to visit my doctor yearly just to be sure , he mentioned something like protein powders not being a good idea. What gets me is I can't really remember what he said specifically. I can't find anything anywhere about protein powders or ingredients to them being related to glaucoma, so I'm wondering what my doctor might've said. Any ideas? I AM reading that too much protein could cause problems, but I'm not going to take excessive, ridiculous amounts. So yeah, is there any relation to protein supplements and glaucoma?
Possible glaucoma or just sinuses?
First off, I was born with glaucoma, as rare as that is. It was surgically corrected in my right eye and the doctors told me it was completely gone when I was around 13 14 19 now . Recently, I've had a soreness in both my eyes, and I can't really decide if it's more above the eye or behind it. I've been coughing with some sinus drainage lately, so I'm ASSUMING it's sinuses, but with my history of eye issues, I'm still kind of worried. I'll be seeing an optometrist tomorrow morning. It's also worth noting that I've had no changes in vision of any kind, just sore, sensitive eyes. Am I overthinking this? If it is sinuses, it's the first time they've affected my eyes I'm a nose guy in that regard .

Cataracts & Glaucoma?
Can any one preferably a optometrist or ophthalmologist tell me if cataracts make it harder to monitor Glaucoma? I was diagnosed with cataracts last year then this year I was diagnosed with glaucoma. The ophthalmologist want to operate on my cataracts as he said it's stopping him from assessing the glaucoma properly. He also said it will make the glaucoma pressure drop. He has told me nothing about either the operation or the glaucoma. I am left to try to find information on the internet.
Will I get Glaucoma is the future?
Im a 21 year old african american male and I just had a appointment with the opthamoloigist. I alerady know that african american's are at the biggest risk for glaucoma but since my blood pressure and eye pressures are good then why is this happening .They said that my retina was good and that my eye pressure was 15. However, we found out that one of my eyes is stronger then the other. My right eye has a slightly bigger optnic nerve than my left eye. They said this could be a sign of glaucoma. They said I shouldnt be worried but just keep monitoring it over the years. One of the doctors also told me that I might have been born like this and that it was like this all along. What are the chances of me getting glaucoma even thought Im African AMerican.
