Pain behind eye: Eye pain can be both distracting and debilitating. The cause of eye pain can sometimes be difficult to diagnose. If eye pain is due to an injury, then the cause is pretty obvious. However, if you wake up in the morning with eye pain, it can be quite disturbing. What is important is to determine if the pain has onset suddenly or gradually gotten worse. Is the pain very sharp or like a dull ache?
