I have a sharp stabbing pain in my left eye when I bend over. Just began last night. No change in vision and not every time I bend over. But painful enough to really take notice.

I have glaucoma and I'm only 20 I've been in and out of the hospital for all my life with uvitus which then developed into secondary glaucoma. I had the big operation (that I can't remember the name of) about a year ago. Everything went well, but then I was told I have a cataract forming.

I was in San Antonio on a very hot day. While on (vacation) I had a soda with ice at a noon meal. I sipped through a straw. I couldn't stand the pain in my eye. I had to stop drinking it. Later I had a glass of ice water. I could not drink it through a straw as it hurt so much it brought tears to my eye. It also happened with another cold drink, as long as I drank it out of the glass it was ok, but with a straw it was too painful. It was similar to an "ice cream headache" except worse. Otherwise I am in excellent health.
