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?

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 more

Why do my eyes hurt after I put on contacts? Am I doing something wrong?

Why do my eyes hurt after I put on contacts?  Am I doing something wrong?

Possible misfit.: If your eyes hurt after placing contacts on it could be that they have been misfit for the shape of your cornea. This is especially likely if the eyes hurt immediately after placing them on and they keep hurting. If the eyes are initially comfortable and then hurt later on, it could be that you have dry eyes and your lenses are not permitting enough oxygen to get to the cornea. Tears might help. ...Read more

I have lattice degen in my R eye. When I have eye pain that hurts to keep open, I get worried retina is detached. Eye dr says nothing is wrong. Signs?

Something else: Retinal detachment is very rarely painful, & when painful, is often associated with other, non lattice degeneration-related detachment problems. Your pain is most likely related to other ocular conditions such as corneal drying (dry eyes; meds side effects), migraine, contact lens related issues (if worn), eyelid conditions, environmental (wind, dust, allergy), or other. See your Eye MD for help ...Read more

Dry eye syndrome: Adequate tears are necessary to lubricate the top layer of the cornea, the clear dome over the fron of your eye and the conjunctiva, the "skin" over your eye ball. When they are insufficient, small defects can occur in the top layer, exposung nerves underneath- and this causes discomfort, sandy or gritty feeling and pain.
