Hi, i'd like to know if bad sinus pressure and headaches can lead to a high iop reading for your eye?
Not likely: Ordinary sinus infections don't have direct affects on intraocular pressure. If by chance your sinus infection was so severe as to spread into the orbit (eye socket), then the associated pressure in the orbit can compress the eyeball and consequently raise iop. This latter infection (orbital cellulitis) is extremely serious and requires prompt medical and potential surgical management. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Frontal sinuses are located just above the nose and are not formed in an young child; maxillary sinuses that are located on either side of the nose do not get blocked as they have a large opening. So, sinus infections do not happen in infants. Yellow eyes are from jaundice or severe cases of hypercarotenemia. So, if the eyes are yellow, the infant needs to be evaluated by a physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bacterial infection in the sinuses may require antibiotic treatment. Seeing your doctor would be prudent to settle the issue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How does levodopa/carbidopa cause a rise in intraocular pressure? I understand that it can cause an acute rise in that pressure but how?
Define infant: The sinus cavities don't start to form clinically until 4-6m and are difficult to assess reliably before a year of age, if then. Sinus xrays at a year are often filled with fluid with a cold & that study does not reliably confirm a dx. After a year of age the DX is a bit more realistic. Tonsillitis & nasopharyngitis are common early sinusitis like illnesses & can boost a fever &wbc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a sinus infection with Pressure in cheek, forehead. Could the infection cause my upper teeth to be very sensitive to cold water when drinki?

Possible: It is possible for ethmoid ( the sinuses next to the orbit) sinusitis to encroach upon the orbit (globe of the eye) and affect the extra-ocular muscles. Sometimes the bone separating the ethmoid sinus from the eye is dehiscent (loss of bone) and infection can enter the orbit secondary to sinus infection. Much more common in pediatric sinusitis. ...Read more
