IOP & EYE PAIN

EyeWorld Magazine: February 2008

This is a very interesting report that theorizes that "substantial" increased IOP leads to increase ATP concentration which leads to increased pain in the eye. Interesting, and we don't usually associate pain with minimally, or even moderately increased IOP, but I've seen patients with minimally elevated IOP complaining of dull aching pain that is alleviated with IOP-lowering medications. Hmm.
