My husband has glaucoma in one eye, Karen, and has drops three times a day. He had laser treatment to reduce the pressure a couple of years ago and this now makes flying inadvisable. Last year after we had flown from Prague to Schippol he had a bleed in the eye with glaucoma and so we will not fly again except in a dire emergency. We will miss my only nephew’s wedding in Arizona this autumn as the long flight is too risky, and his sight too precious.Our 43 year old now has her eyes tested annually as she already has poor eyesight from her premature birth. The drops are something that is a part of his life along with his diabetic medication and you will get used to them very quickly. His tip for you is to lie down if possible when you put the drops in your eyes as it seems to keep the drops in longer before they escape from the corners of your eyes. Keep calm and eat chocolate!
