In brief: Eye pain on Benicar (olmesartan)

Please see an ophthalmologist (O) as soon as possible.
Your eye problem is almost certainly not due to any blood pressure medications you are on. Please go see an O ASAP.

In brief: Advice only!

We can't help you in any way except to convince you to see an eye doctor, either a ophthalmologist or a qualified optometrist, right a way.
The combination of eye pain and vision loss can indicate a serious condition that needs prompt & proper treatment to avoid permanent loss of vision. Please take this advice seriously. I wish you the best.
