Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

It is hard to tell if this is from glaucoma as many conditions can cause symptoms such as yours.

Dr. Rick :

I would suggest you have a complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist (MD) to be on the safe side.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Dr. Rick :

Hi. Welcome to chat.

Customer: Yes it does. Could these headaches behind my eyes be caused from something else
Dr. Rick :

Yes. Lot's of things can cause pain behind the eyes and the best way to sort things out is with a good exam.

Customer: Ok I will do that is it possible that they might have to change my prescription
Dr. Rick :

That is a possibility. Best of luck to you.
