    People who have glaucoma may suffer high eye pressure which would cause severe headaches and eye pain in some cases. If you let it untreated, it will cause damage to the optic nerve. Once you have been diagnosed with glaucoma, you should have them treated as quickly as possible, otherwise it will cause other serious problems. However, there are some other factors that can cause headaches. So you should go to see a doctor immediately to seek the exact reason of the headache.
