Recently (sunday) i was very angry which probably caused high blood pressure (though i dont have blood pressure originally but i stress out ALOT). After a while, i started feeling slight pressure in my left eye and it is there since then. There are times when it isnt there that much and others when the feeling is there. Today after about a week...i still have that feeling. What could it be...is it just due to hypertension? Has anyone had a similar eye pressure feeling before, if yes, please share your experience, i am very genuinely concerned.

    Why do you think you have either condition, do you already have an eye condition?  If so and if you are worried, then you should see your opththalmologist.

      I have a feeling of slight pressure in left eye since sunday. I am scheduled for an opthalmologist appointment in the coming week. But i want to know if rise in eye pressure is always dangerous leading to glaucoma.

      When I have raised interocular pressure, I have never actually felt that the pressure had risen.

      Why are you seeing an Ophthalmologist?

      becasue of the 'pressure feeling', i think its one of the symptoms of a type of glaucoma, so i want to get it checked.

      Well, I hope it goes well for you and try not to worry too much beforehand.

      Let me know how you get on.
