Occular hypertension

My last eye exam showed eye pressure readings of 24 and 25, however the pachymetry readings were 656 and 654. Do I need any kind of waiver for the high perssures for an ATC class 2? The air force is requiring a waiver for anything above 22 for their flying class 3 (i'm a reservist).

Thanks

My eye doctor said it wasn't glaucoma, just high pressure measurements due in part to the thickness of my corneas. I passed all the visual field tests and they took photos of my optic nerve and all that. No issues at all. No loss of vision. I'll have them fill this out and get it to my AME. I already have to go for a SI for sleep apnea. Thanks!
