Abstract: Inhalation steroid therapy can cause ocular hypertension or open angle glaucoma. The authors describe the case of a young girl who presented with raised intraocular pressure and headaches due to the prolonged administration of nasal and inhalation steroids. The ophthalmologist should monitor the intraocular pressure in patients who use inhalation or nasal steroid therapy on a regular base. The physician or paediatrician should be aware of this complication in children with headaches or diminished visual acuity.
