Is elevated eye ball pressure totally curable with physiotherapy ?

I had to travel 2 times for 24 hrs in a span of 4 days under A/c train. I didnt notice that left face had paralysed with my eyes not closing and right eye blinking. The physician diagonised as Bells Palsy and suggested me to see a eye specialist since i had eye ball pressure measuring between 21 and 22 and the eye specialist referred me to a neurologist telling my eye problem was normal. My neuro surgeon suggested i dont have to take steroids and only physiotherapy should cure me and bring back normalcy. Is it 100 percent curable. I am worried

Dear Friend,

Your description suggest that you developed bells palsy secondary to exposure to cold to the middle ear. this recovers completely in about 95% of times. some doctors favors use of steroids and antiallergics and some just advice physiotherapy. The end results are same. Hope you get well as soon as possible. Use lubricating gels like lacrigel or genteal gel at night and take a nutritious diet.
