I'm wondering if there is a glaucoma or eye forum on Healing Well?
I looked but couldn't see any and thought it might be listed under another name.

Good evening. No, there isn't any forum here at HealingWell for eyes or glaucoma. I'm sorry. Have you been diagnosed with it? I take eye drops for glaucoma.

I've been going to eye doctor for about 30 years and at present take 3 drops.
I actually have Inter-ocular Hypertension and the drops I take are to prevent glaucoma. Who said these are the Golden Years?

(I had to delete my 'signature' because it was too large. How I can make my signature as small as yours? When I look in change profile I see my signature has <font size=small>)

I'm glad you're taking care of this. I have been taking two kinds of eye drops for several years as they found my eye pressure was too high. Glaucoma can be controlled as long as it's diagnosed! The problem is that many people don't see eye doctors and don't get tested.

I can't remember how I made the letters small in the profile but when I went to look at it, this is what is in front of the small script: whatever words you want here .

Ok, I got it. First put a 1 inside brackets [ and ]. Then type the words you want after the brackets. When you're finished, type a bracket [ and then a / then a 1 and then ]. (So between the second set of brackets you have /1)

Not sure if that's understandable.

If you look in the box on the left of the place where you type your signature, it says to use mCode for changing the look of the type. If you click on mCode you'll get instructions and example of how to change the fonts and colors.

Here's what it says about size:

FONT SIZE

HTML Tag : <font size=...></font>
mCode Tag : This has multiple types for different tag types as shown.

Small Text becomes Small Text
Meduim Text becomes Medium Text
Large Text becomes Large Text
X-Large Text becomes X-Large Text
Huge Text becomes Huge Text

"Too large" may not refer to the font size, but instead it may be too long. Sometimes the error messages are not quite right. Or maybe it does mean font size. One never knows.

Thanks for your help Lanie. I'm now looking for a good glaucoma forum. I had one good one (it had an MD answering questions) but in went off line. I'm looking at this one below and will see what it has to offer and how often people post questions/answers. I do believe it is based in the UK though. But think they have same types of drops, etc.

Here's another one that is supposed to have an MD answering questions:
