Uncertain cause: Soreness around the eyes can often be sinus related, since there are sinuses around every side of the orbit except the outside wall. There could also be a localized infection with in the eyelid or the tear drainage system that can make the bone around the eye feel sore or tender. The tear drainage system is located near the inside / lower part of the orbit. Try warm or cool compress to the area.
