Problems at 12,000'

Jump to last reply

For altitude sickness I have a prescription for Diamox. I tried it for 2 days at home and had no ill effects. But now my ophthalmologist is concerned about the effects of high altitude on my glaucoma. I also saw a glaucoma specialist and he is just concerned about my low blood pressure at that altitude. My lower number (diastolic) is 68-70 in mid day and evening but is 76-78 in early morning. Anyone have any knowledge or experience of high altitudes with glaucoma and low Blood pressure? Not sure if my travel insurance would pay. Though I do have pre-existent conditions coverage, they want one to prove that this is some new happening since the day I bought the insurance. HELP! I am supposed to leave in two weeks!
