I also have increased eye pressure in both eyes, found during an eye exam. I have also had eye pain at night. I have been taking omeprazole for 2 1/2 years for acid reflux. I learned of this side effect by researching on the internet. The eye doctor gave me drops to use for the past 5 months, and the pressure has dropped I stopped taking the omeprazole 11 days ago, but was wondering how much longer the eye pressure will continue.
