[QUOTE=cali1892;3950983]Hi,
I was wondering if someone could describe the eye pain associated with ON. Does it feel like eye strain when you are tired? Is it kind of a stretching pulling type pain when you move your eye to the left or right?[/QUOTE]
For me, the pain varies. Most of my pain is at the back of my eye and is either really painful, radiating pain or pressure. The worst is the pain that radiates because it spreads to the rest of my "noggin". I think that each person experiences it differently.
I use acupressure where the pain radiates and I am usually able to stop it from spreading. Cold compresses can also help.

My Japanese MS friend has no eye pain, just loss of vision that comes and goes.

I hope this helps. :angel:
Hi Jayhawk, thanks for responding. Is the pain/pressure at the back of your eye at your temple? Sometimes like the whole eye socket?

It "feels" like it is in the back of my eye at a point parallel to my temple. When I use acupressure at that point I relieve my pain about 90% of the time. I have never reached the point where the pain takes over the whole socket. As soon as it starts to radiate, I use the acupressure.:angel::angel:
i have been having eye pain for 2 weeks on the right eye in the corner. No vision change or anything just pain. today i went to Dr Optho and my eye pressure was 25 and potentially could get glaucoma in long run. Had pictures clicked on cornea and inside of the eye. Everything checks okay.

SO she started me on Xalatan drops to reduce the pressure. The pressure in the eye could cause eye pain so I am wait and watch.

DO you have glaucoma?
