Brief Answer:
The symptoms depend on the tyoe of glaucoma.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health care Magic.

I am Dr. Dadapeer K an ophthalmologist and I will be answering your question.
I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are prescribed with Lumigan eye drops for increased intraocular pressure and you want to know the symptoms of increased intraocular pressure.
Increased intraocular pressure is called as glaucoma and the symptoms depend on the type of glaucoma.
In narrow angle glaucoma the intraocular pressure raises suddenly and it presents as pain, redness, blurred or hazy vision, headache or brow ache....
In open angle glaucoma the intraocular pressure raises slowly and symptoms are usually absent here. It is detected on measurement of intraocular pressure and optic disc.

Hope the information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you
With regards

I was in a non-collision car accident where I had to lock up my brakes to avoid being hit by a cargo van in Sept. 2010. I was in bed for 4 days with a severe headache, whiplash, nausea, and sensetivity to light and sound. I have since the accident have had issues with vision in my right eye. At first I had a blind spot in my field of vision and had numerous tests done to check the optic nerve. Now I have been told that it appears that my right eye turns in towards my nose and my vision is still blurred in it to the point I have to turn my head to use my left eye to see better. My question is why am I still having issues with my vision in my right eye and what could be causing this?

My daughter went to have her eyes examined for new glasses and they said she had papilledema. She is 27 yrs old. She had no symptoms- no headache etc. She had an MRI which was normal . She does have an enlarged blind spot in her right eye. She has seen an neurologist and an neuro opthamologist. Both doctors have put her through many tests and are seeing her for follow up visits. She would like to take a vacation over seas. I am concerned about her flying.
