Hi to all suffering with gastroscopy reflux and having problems with their eye pressure. Have been on Lansaprozole for a couple of months after taking Omeprazole and symptoms not improving. Had a routine eye test in March this year and the optician said my eye pressure was the highest it has been for 8 years. He asked me to have a repeat test 2 weeks later which resulted in it still being a bit high. He referred me to the ophthalmology dept of a local hospital. My tests revealed my pressure was still a bit high and will have to have repeat tests in a couple of months. I have studied the results for the people on Lansaprozole recording high pressure and it seems like 1 out of so many thousands. Could I be the unlucky one?
