Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Dr. Mires here to help answer your question. You've said that this has been happening gradually over the last year? Is it just in one eye, not the other?
Also, what are your current medical problems? Have you ever been diagnosed with diabetes, epilepsy, glaucoma, etc that you know of?
Hello good evening or good morning and I'm terribly sorry for my very delayed response. Believe it or not anxiety can cause side effects relating to your vision eyesight. So can hi blood pressure… And when you're anxious your blood pressure tends to spike. I would have more conclusive testing done for diabetes and glaucoma as well as hypertension. A spike in blood glucose after eating a meal is not only normal but expected; however this does not mean that you do not have diabetes and you need further testing to rule that out officially. The fact they say it feels like pressure in your eye makes me think of high blood pressure related issue and or glaucoma. You need to undergo a tonometry reading to determine your intraocular pressure, which is how we determine a patients risk factor for glaucoma. When it comes to your vision, it's never one of those"Let's just wait and see what happens"Type situations. When you find abnormalities you need to seek resolutions immediately to insure no permanent damage is done
