It is possible: It depends on how severe the sinusitis is. In some patients untreated sinusitis will lead to eye complications: double vision, severe eye infections, and even blindness. These orbital complications of sinusitis will require both medical and surgical intervention. One should see an ENT doctor as the initial step and depending on the exam, the ENT may need to consult with an ophthalmologist.
