Customer Question
I have chronic angle...

I have chronic angle closure glaucoma. Last night my husband and I had very intense sex and after my 10th orgasm my eye with glaucoma hurt, and my vision went blurry for nearly half an hour. Do orgasms cause an increase in eye pressure? Should we avoid such intense sexual activity?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Have you been having any headaches?

I have eye aches that come and go. I've had glaucoma (undiagnosed) for over 10 years and recently started treatment.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I know of. I also have hypothyroidism following I131 about 20 years ago. Not sure if that's related at all.

Hello, I am Dr. Pennington. Here is an article that attempts to answer this question.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3787831/

All in all the answer is "maybe" sex does increase intraocular pressure.

Be cautious. I hope this helps! 5-star if it answers your question! Thx.
