It is very unlikely that you have glaucoma, but since you saw an optometrist, you need a good exam with an ophthalmologist (EyeMD). The air puff test is not the most accurate way of testing eye pressure. Tensing, flinching, or breath holding during the eye pressure measurement can artificially elevate the eye pressure; try to relax the next time it is measured, don't squeeze your lids, and breathe normally. You also need a gonioscopy (test of the eye's drainage angle), pachymetry (measurement of corneal thickness), visual field, and detailed exam of the optic nerve plus either HRT or OCT to document structure. You are only mildly myopic; glasses will help you drive, especially at night. You will not need the glasses to read or work on a computer. While it does sound as if your peripheral vision is fine, a formal visual field test is still needed.
I have more concerning news, I had an eye exam 6 weeks prior to the one above and I just found out the results were:
Pressure on the right was 20mmHG the left was 24 which was similar to the 26 I got the other day.
Both cup discs were 0.5 according to this doctor at the time and healthy and symmetrical.
More recently the left pressure was 26 and the right 20 I think and the right eye was 0.5 and the left 0.7.
I have heard that an optic nerve exam doesn't always have the same result from observer to observer and even eye to eye with the same observer. Are there any flaws with the optic nerve exam?
Also they both came from an optometrist.
What I am concerned about are the correlations in the data.
Is it unusual for an eye with glaucoma to change CD ratio from 0.5 to 0.7 in a mere 6 weeks especially with a pressure of just 24 to 26? Or is likely to be an inaccurate observation somewhere along the line?
