Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you are having eye pressure. If this is a new symptom, you should have your ocular pressure measured to rule out acute onset glaucoma. This is a simple test that can be done with an Optometrist or at an Urgent Care Center.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
