Dealing with water pressure, diving in the ocean?

So I was snorkeling off a mexican coast, and I wasn t diving very much. Just 10-15 feet maybe. And my tour guide had zero issue getting lower with no signs of discomfort. Any way of dealing with the water pressure on your ears? Or tough it out?

Update:

I have no more discomfort, only when trying to get too low. I'm just trying to figure out a way to dive like the instructor to explore coral and what not

    You need an ENT doctor to examine your Eustachian tubes. There may be a blockage or restriction of some kind. Don't try to tough it out or you will end up with a burst eardrum. That will put paid to your diving , not to mention deafness and excruciating pain.
