Glaucoma: Extremely elevated eye pressure can cause severe eye pain and nausea. Narrow angle or acute glaucoma, as well as other forms of glaucoma (neovascular in diabetics), or surgically-induced high eye pressure can also lead to these symptoms. Eye pain severe enough to cuase nausea should be evaluated immediately. Otherwise, blindness can ensue and be permanent.
