I had partial detached retina surgery about two years ago. I have had a slight constant headache around that eye for about four months. Could there be a relationship between the surgery and the headaches?

Dr. Rick :

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

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I am a retina doc. Do you know if you had a scleral buckle placed during your surgery? If not, what was done to repair your partial detachment?

Dr. Rick :

Tell me more about the headaches.......

Customer:

The surgery was performed with a laser. My headaches are not strong, but steady. It feels like pressure as much as anything and seems to center around the right eye (which is the one that had the partial tear). It hurts more when I cough, but only temporarily. I do not know what scleral buckle is. The headache pain radiates into my cheek bone and lower forehead.

Dr. Rick :

Ok

Dr. Rick :

The laser repair of your retinal tear two years would not be expected to have anything to do with your headaches at this point.

Dr. Rick :

A more likely cause would be some type of sinus issue. Also, mild migraines are often localized around the eye/orbit.

Dr. Rick :

Let me know if you would like to discuss this issue further. Have a good day.
