Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I need a few answers from you, before deciding on the reasons for heaviness or itching.

Can you please give the details for the following questions?

  1. Are you on anti-glaucoma medication? If so, can you name them?
  2. When was the last eye examination done, what was the eye pressure?
  3. What is the grade of glaucoma?

Itching can be because of specific anti-glaucoma medications.

I need to know the eye pressure to decide whether your current heaviness is due to the anti-glaucoma medications.

This is to decide whether we need to change or continue the medication or decide on any other modalities of eye pressure control in relation to the severity of glaucoma.
