Not Glaucoma

FYI: I was ?diagnosed? with Glaucoma 2 years ago, sent to a specialist and supposed to have laser surgery to relieve the pressure. After going to a acupuncturist and a recommendation from him to go to a chiropractor, my
?glaucoma? diagnosis disappeared. Went back to the eye doctor and the pressures were completely in the normal range.
I have been told by the acupuncturist and chiropractor, all of the nerves from the eye channel down thru your back thru a "spincter" (their terminology that I could understand) muscle and if your back is out of alignment the pressures in your eyes can skyrocket to the glaucoma range.

How I went to the eye doctor: redness in the eyes thought to be pinkeye.
How I went to the acupuncturist: left eye would not stop tearing and had to wear tissue on my blouse to catch the tears running down my cheek-relief was needed like now! And he was amazing!

Hope this helps someone else.
