What is a normal eye pressure range?

It has a wide range: Best to know what your normal range is upon measurement at the eye doctor, and that your optic nerve is looking healthy. That's a better indicator. So although intraocular pressures of 12 to 22 would be considered normal, there are normotensive and low tension glaucoma which can occur at normal low pressures and still cause eye disease. ...Read more

These checks help to determine if your optic nerve(s) is(are) developing glaucoma. If disease is suspected, treatment is started & checkups more frequently. ...Read more

I was diag with ambylopia, nystagmus, high eye pressure and astigmatism. Is it normal to have this many eye conditions without an underlying cause?

I was diag with ambylopia, nystagmus, high eye pressure and astigmatism. Is it normal to have this many eye conditions without an underlying cause?

Not rare: Astigmatism is a developmental ovalness of the eye and occurs to some degree in over 60% of humans. Amblyopia and nystagmus usually develop at birth or at young age. High blood pressure can occur at any age but is more common in those older than you. These are largely independent and not due to an underlying common cause. ...Read more

My wife's eye pressure was normal but other parameters were not normal. Doctor told it is glaucoma. What to do? How to live with it?

My wife's eye pressure was normal but other parameters were not normal. Doctor told it is glaucoma. What to do? How to live with it?

Second opinion: The hallmark of glaucoma, especially in a young person, is elevated pressure. There are other risk factors which contribute to the diagnosis but do not make the diagnosis. If the visual field is altered, that can be a clue, but visual field changes can come from other causes. You should seek a second opinion from an ophthalmologist who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. ...Read more

Eye pressure raised after using FML (fluorometholone) for 1 month. How long will it take for pressure to go back to normal?

Eye pressure raised after using FML (fluorometholone) for 1 month. How long will it take for pressure to go back to normal?

2 weeks: usually the FML (fluorometholone) will be all washed out in 2 weeks. The elevated pressure is most likely a separate issue from the FML (fluorometholone) drops, but a recheck after 2 weeks will reveal if there is something else to be addressed. Some might wait a month, there is no hurry ...Read more

I have daily mild headaches, lightheadedness, eye pressure, sometimes mild nausea, sensitivity to sunlight that worsen my symptoms since over a year?

I have daily mild headaches, lightheadedness, eye pressure, sometimes mild nausea, sensitivity to sunlight that worsen my symptoms since over a year?

Headache syndrome: Your symptoms are at least suggestive of chronic daily headaches. Although this is not a specific diagnosis it does indicate that if your headaches are not due to some obvious secondary cause then, you will need a form of preventative medication or intervention. My advice is to begin a headache diary and seek out a good specialist. Don't overuse/abuse over-the-counter medications. ...Read more

I'm ocular hypertensive, iop at base 16 (controlled). Does weightlifting increase eye pressure? What about normal breathing vs valsalva maneuver?

Yes but . .: Weightlifting, breath holding and being upside down will cause an increase in the pressure in the eye temporarily. So also will rubbing the eyes and any other activity which puts actual pressure on the eye. These effects are temporary and your having controlled glaucoma should not be an issue. Pressure has to be elevated for a long time to cause damage. ...Read more

I have pressure in my left temple, pressure behind my eye, pain in my left ear, tired and fuzzy. Blood test normal, go can't find anything, what wrong?

I have pressure in my left temple, pressure behind my eye, pain in my left ear, tired and fuzzy. Blood test normal, go can't find anything, what wrong?

You need to...: ... keep gong back and working with your doctor until you have an answer. The most worrisome thing is that you have multiple symptoms that are localized to the same area: the left side of your head. In my opinion, MR imaging should be done. Excluding some type of growth or blood vessel problem in this part of your head is important. Good wishes:) ...Read more
