Flu, optic neuritis : The two most common causes of pain with eye movement are optic neuritis and the flu. Optic neuritis is usually unilateral and accompanied with visual loss and you should have other common flu symptoms if you have the flu. If it doesn't resolve see an ophthalmologist for a definitive diagnosis.
