Eye pain after sinus: Make sure you are on your Flonase regularly two times a day 2 sprays and you will be fine. You need more time. Any vision problems ? If so get checked much sooner feel better!

No: Your surgeon is right in that the healing process can take a while. If these symptoms persist beyond a few more weeks or the eye pressure is present in the absence of nasal symptoms on the affected side, further investigation is warranted. You should discuss your treatment plan with your surgeon.

Probably not: Probably not. Make sure you tell ENT doc ASAP if eye symptoms increase.
