Yes, but: Certain types of glaucoma can cause eye ache (angle closure, inflammatory, neovascular, etc), but eye pain isn't a hallmark of glaucoma (for that matter, elevated intraocular pressure isn't either - about 1/3 of people with glaucoma in the US are thought to have "normal tension" glaucoma - ie the pressure falls in a "normal" range). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Past 2 days I have a sinus headache, congestion, drainage, and ear " fullness". I have glaucoma, and r/eye is very red, puffy and draining. I am a 100% s/c vet, should I visit emergency ?
Sinus and Glaucoma: You didn't say whether you have open or closed angle glaucoma. If you took certain meds to relieve your sinus symptoms, they can increase the pressure in your eye, given your glaucoma. Nevertheless, with your history, i would not take lightly your unilateral eye symptoms, even though acute sinus problems can cause eye puffiness and drainage. To be on the safe side, i would check it out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Since I have had laser treatment for glaucoma I have been suffering with horrible headaches pain in the teeth cheekbones and blowing green junk out

The symptoms you describe are more consistent with a sinus infection. My suggestion see your eye doctor again to make sure the laser was successful and no complications developed. Also see your primary care provider. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Poss for symps of glaucoma 1 week, then not for 3 weeks? Had naus, vom, headache + severe eye pain - now he jus has cloudy vision that wasnt there b4.
I'm having constant frontal headaches associated with eye pain/eye strain. I've taken Tylenol, but doesn't help. I was recently diagnosed with glaucoma and I'm 29. Could there possibly be a misdiagnose and I could possibly have a brain tumor?
Maybe but: I doubt that you have a tumor. You can get it checked but the more likely cause is stress and the eye strain you mentioned. The glaucoma can give you eye pain. Has this been treated and is it severe? Do you have a lot of stress. If you have eye strain have you been checked for glasses? These are things I would check out first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
