Sharp pain in forehead
Hi Docs, I'm a working professional who sits around 8-9 hours infront of the computer. My left eye power is -.75 and right eye is -1.25. From past 4-5 days I've been experiencing a sharp shooting pain (for 1-2mins) at left bottom side of my forehead. Its happening mostly after the sunset and disappears in morning. Please let me know the possible causes and suggest what medication i should go for. Thanks.

Remember 20-20 rule : 20 minutes of work, 20 seconds break from the screen 2. Make sure you blink properly while working. Lack of blinking leads to dryness in the eye that can induce symptoms 3.
