See eye doctor now: Have you had your eye pressure measured? I think you need to see an ophthalmologist immediately to make sure that you don't have glaucoma which can lead to blindness if not promptly treated. An alternate answer would be migraine which is of concern also if it occurs for the 1st time at your age.
