hi dear
thanks for choosing HCM

glaucoma is a disease of the eye which may give photophobia or pain in temple,but
not usually.there are many other causes which need to be ruled out first

1. refractive error of the eye
2.any subtle corneal pathology
3.subacute inflammation of uvea which is a vascular coat of the eye
4.last comes the glaucoma

to rule out above a thorough eye examination is required .also get your BP checked and also the blood suger levels

Ophthalmologist Dr. Sushama Suram's  Response
The symptoms you are having are not related to glaucoma.
Those are just because of ocular strain..
Don't worry.. If you have a family history of glaucoma, go for a complete ocular examination to rule out glaucoma..
Hope I answered your query...
