Late in 2016 I was diagnosed with something called "narrow angle". In a maybe 5% to 10% of cases like mine blindness of the same type glaucoma causes happens. The problem is unlike glaucoma, the blindness can happen quickly - in a matter of a couple of days.

The recommendation was a laser eye surgery - basically they burn a hole in the iris of the eye. Sounds scary. The hardest part of getting drops. I had my surgery at age 74. I have an appointment in early August to schedule cataract surgery. Guess this is the 'Year of the Eye' so to speak.
