  • I would investigate further with a GP perhaps see a new one to get a second opinion.

  • Did you go to an actual eye dr or just one in a strip mall? There are 2 kinds of eye dr's: 1 that you can go to just to get glasses and 1 that you go to if you are having issues. Sorry, my brain is mush right now so I can't think of the name of the dr that you should see.

    Are your eyes red? Puffy? Itchy? What part of your eye hurts?

  • Did the ophthalmologist dilate your eyes and test the pressure inside them? I'm no doctor, obviously, but I've battled glaucoma and severe eye pressure and pain for years, and the symptoms sound familiar. How' your blood pressure, also? Have you ever been diagnosed with migraines?

  • you misunderstand
    the pressure in your eyes is different than your blood pressure

    you really should have the pressure checked every year or so as part of your health maintenance

  • If your eyes are hurting and sensitive to light, you need to get an appointment with an ophthalmologist--not an optometrist or an optician--and have your eyes dilated and the intraocular pressure checked. If you don't, you could be endangering your vision. Some people are given prescription drops to lower the pressure and ease the pain. There are also procedures that can deaden the pain-sensing nerves in the eyes, but those aren't routinely done on people who still have usable vision.
