A 64‐year‐old woman was referred to the glaucoma clinic at a tertiary eye hospital with elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) noted by her optometrist (right eye, 42 mmHg; left eye, 40 mmHg; reference interval, 10–21 mmHg). She reported being diagnosed with normal tension glaucoma in the left eye at 30 years of age at another hospital, for which she had been prescribed topical pilocarpine 1% three times per day. However, after several years of follow‐up with no progressive change of either the optic disc or visual field, and with IOP consistently in the normal range, treatment had been ceased. She had low myopia; there was no family history of glaucoma. She had no other medical history apart from eczema.
