Tension: I am assuming that you are not having any nausea, sensitivity to light, sound or smell which would make this more of a migrainous headache. Therefore, this would be classified as a muscle tension headache. pain with movements of eyes is a common complaint in my practice. this is only an issue if one eye hurts and the vision is altered in one eye, or if you are having double vision.
