You will need urgent medication, after evaluation by an ophthalmologist. High eye pressure due to any cause, even for a period of 24 hours, can cause permanent damage to the optic nerve (vision nerve). After verifying the reasons for your steroid usage, you may have to them as well. We should not prescribe medicines in this forum. It is illegal.

Hi there...for which condition are you taking steroids like wysolone 20mg?? The ophthalmologist is correct. It is wysolone that is causing raised intra ocular pressure. One of the common side effects is it raises intra ocular pressure, that is, glaucoma. It will usually come back to normal, once the drug is stopped. Your pain could also be related to the raised intra ocular pressure. So kindly consult the doctor who started you on wysolone and inform them regarding the raised intra ocular pressure. They might then decide to reduce the dose of possible. Also you can consult the ophthalmologist for further evaluation regarding eye pain.
