Symptoms of High Eye Pressure?

Hey All: Has anyone experienced High Eye Pressure? I need to know what the symptoms are when the eye pressure is increasing? Thanks.

Re: Symptoms of High Eye Pressure?

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.


Tony

Sometimes I got eye headaches with the high pressure, but that's about it. It's kinda like high blood pressure. You don't get any symptoms even if you have it.

Re: Symptoms of High Eye Pressure?

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????

Re: Symptoms of High Eye Pressure?

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.

Tony
