could sinus or ear infections cause vision problems in one eye?

Sinus/ear infections: Will typically not cause any problems with your eyes. A severe sinus infection could potentially spread into tissues in the socket around your eye and could cause some eye problems if not treated properly. Make sure you take any medication prescribed by your doctor if you have an infection in your sinuses.
