Myofascial pain syndrome associated with occipitofrontalis muscle most of the time undergo underdiagnosed after eye surgery, and the exact cause remain to be ascertained. The present study is a case report which indicates that it may be one of the reasons for eye pain and/or headache that is misinterpreted as glaucoma or increased intraocular pressure. A systematic study is warranted to avoid the use of medicine in similar cases.
