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.
