  1. for the docs on this group, here is a pair of pics I took of this 50 yo
    wf the first one taken a little over a year ago:


    and the second one today:


    today's pic was taken through an aqua tinted contact lens, while the
    other was w/o contact.

    iops were last year 14 mm Hg o.u. and today 12 mm (goldmann)

    corneas are over 600 mu thick

    any comments?

    Interesting. I see what looks like fine neovascularization which
    appears to be associated with the bleeding. No cupping, so I feel
    comfortable in ruling out glaucoma. Blood vessels exhibit tortuosity,
    along with A/V nicking. Hypertension? Diabetes?

    Were the visual fields normal? Interesting that the splinter
    has not changed over a year's time.
