glaucoma eye drops such as lumigan can cause irritation and dryness to the surface of your eyes. this can be a cause of your headaches. using artificial tears over the counter 4 times per day will help with this. if the headaches do not improvement, you want to see your eye doctor again to recheck the eye pressure.
