Eye pressure with lack of vision

dpbowl posted:
Does anyone have eye pressure,feeling like there is a pillow held behind your eye,. I have had this pressure for 3 years. I have been to many eye centers with nuero optomologists and they say my eye is perfectly healthy and the pressure of my eye is normal. When I take the eye test and am given the black to block the pherriphial vision I can not focus with at all. I have pain in the top inside corner and shadowy vision. Just wondering if anyone else feels like I do. Its started to bug my other eye also.

While the duration of you problem and the number of specialists that you have seen without any "bad" diagnosis speaks against anything terrible, I understand the frustration of not knowing exactly what is going on.

If the problem doesn't resolve or particularly if the symptoms worsen, its worth another look by the neuro-ophthalmologist as well as perhaps an otolaryngologist (ear-nose-throat) specifically looking for a sinus issue - as you know there are sinuses surrounding the eye socket and sometimes your kind of symptoms may seem like eye related but may really be a sinus problem.
