Nov 4, 2018 · Severe eye pain and visual disturbances no one can diagnose in Eye Conditions

@aaronh819 Hi, I understand where you are coming from with pain and headaches on one side. I too am experiencing this with no answers. I'm from Canada and we have a show called W5 which interviewed a Dr. from New England on October 20, 2018 Dr. Pedram Hamrah who is with Tufts Medical Centre https://www.tuftsmedicalcenter.org/patient-care-services/Departments-and-Services/Ophthalmology

The show (W5) was about Lasik Surgery but I look at this as issues when laser is used. This doctor has equipment that can see problems that ophthalmologists can't see because the standard equipment is unable to.

Here's the article and link to the show. It's very good and I think it might be worth it to call his office to get more information.

Hope this helps.

No, the pain triggered immediately after the first laser zap and continues on to this day, including headaches. Pain and headaches are all on the right side as this is the eye that is having the issues. I have not found any ways to live with this.

@rosemarya I did not have headaches or eye pain prior to iridotomy, only until immediately after the first laser zap of the iridotomy. From that point forward, they have never gone away.

Also, I'm curious aaronh819 what your neurologist had found that was rare.

I can relate to the pain and the visual problems (but my visual problems are not where near as bad as yours). I had an iridotomy done on both eyes on July 24 this year. I had no problems with the left eye. But my right eye is an entire different story. Starting from the first laser, the pain was unbearable and I suddenly endured eye pain and headaches on my right side only 10/10. I had severe pain on my eyebrow bone and the inside corner next to my nose. I also had very bad light issues. All 3 issues still remain today. The light issues are quite a bit better now but not gone (it's like the vertical light glare in a window when I blink). And the right eye pain and headaches on right side have dropped from a 10/10 to anywhere from a 3/10 to an 8/10. My pain and headaches trigger to the high levels when I'm outside even though I wear sunglasses. Or even when I'm stressed, do light yard work or light house work. My family doctor believes me and is trying to find a very good ophthalmologist to get a second opinion on the eye pain and headaches.

Sep 28, 2018 · After Iridotomy - eye pain and headaches 2 months later in Eye Conditions

I had a YAG iridotomy done July 24th because my angles were closed. No pain, no nothing … no symptoms. My left eye was done first and yes it hurt but in 5 minutes, pain was gone. A whole different story with my right eye. The initial laser zap was an unbelievable pain that I have ever experienced (I have a very high tolerance for pain) and it never went away and I also had extreme headache on right side as well. I asked the opthamologist what happened because of the extreme pain and headaches. He said nothing. I asked if everything was ok, he said yes. I continue to have headaches and pain in my right eye 2 months later. Has anyone else experienced this?
