And actually, I hadn't looked at my irises for a long time. They're more, well, interesting than they used to be. Kinda neat, really.
A little research says that I'm just a bit old for this, but not ridiculously so. I should avoid high impact sports, running, and jogging.
Sounds good so far.
But then there's that whole glaucoma thing. There're a number of treatments, including eyedrops, drugs, laser surgery, and manually carving out new drainage channels (now there's a winner).
But not every case proceeds to glaucoma. In fact, only about 30% proceed to glaucoma.
But wait, there's more! The incidence of pigment dispersion is about the same in men and women, but for some unknown reason, it results in glaucoma for men three times more often than for women.
A little basic math tells me I'm therefore looking at a 45% chance.
Well, at least it's still under 50%...
And with that, my ocular snowglobes and I are going back to bed.
