What are other triggers of irritable bowel syndrome?

ANSWER

You definitely should get your eyes checked if you think you might have glaucoma. Occasionally, pressure inside the eye can rise to severe levels. In these cases, you may have sudden eye pain, headache, blurred vision, or the appearance of halos around lights. And finding glaucoma early is only one of the reasons to get a complete eye exam with an eye specialist every one to two years.
