Hello, rajk. The danger in high eye pressure (IOP) is there are no symptoms, usually. When it has been too high for too long, and the optic nerve is becoming damaged, your visual field becomes limited. The best safeguard against this happening is to get regular eye checkups, including pressure. Mine was found years ago on a routine check and was due to pigmentary dispersion syndrome. It has nearly burned itself out, and I've not had to use drops in a while.
Hope this has helped.
Thanks for your replies. I find a headachy feeling on the side of the head where my eye has had problems. Along with this I find I also feel light headed. Is this anything to do with eye pressure on the rise????
Hello, rajk. Not sure about those pains, but if it were me, I'd head for a dr. or neurologist about that! It could be there is something that needs checked, an MRI or something to find what that is. I'm not trying to scare you or anything--more than likely, it's nothing serious--but I would get that checked out to be sure. It could also be some sinus problems, which usually isn't a serious thing and can be dealt with effectively. Normally, no pain is associated with eye pressure; It's a silent robber of sight. Try to get that pain seen about and let us know what they say, o.k.? Good deal! Take care, & hope you feel better soon.
