Several reasons: If it is around both eyes it is less concerning and it may be related to anxiety, you can see your family md. If it is persistent and around only one eye it could be more serious since the sensory nerves of the eye and the auditory nerve are at the same place in the brain and a tumor their may cause that. If you have hearing loss on that side must see an ENT & an ophthalmologist asap.

No clue!: Never heard of tickling sensation behind eyes. Dryness can cause a foreign body, gritty sensation.
