Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you for the question.
It is true that thick corneas can give falsely high intraocular pressure records. Hence do not worry about the pressure but do go for regular eye exams annually. It would have helped to know whether you underwent gonioscopy to detect The status of A.C. angles. If documented as open angles then nothing to worry.
The pain in your left eye will subside gradually. Use lubricating eye drops such as Refresh tears eye drops,1 drop 4 times a day as it will soothe the eye. Bot***** *****ne is there is nothing to worry if your eye exam was found to be normal. I'm sure you would have been told if there was to be something wrong in the eye which could have caused this pain. Stay calm and be relaxed. Lesser the anxiety the better you will feel.
No, it is not possible for ocular occluder to have caused any kind of retinal damage. Mere pressure over the eye will not cause retina to tear even if you are myopic. But I guess you are hypermetropic since your corneas are very thick. If you do not eant to use any drops, you may wait for the pain to subside naturally.
I am just following up with you. Has the pain in your left eye subsided? Did you follow up with your doctor again? Did my answer help? Do let me know. If the answers did help then I kindly request you to rate me accordingly.
