Eye: Sinus infections can lead to preseptal or orbital cellilitis. If your eye is painful with lots of drainage then see your primary doctor asap...

Yes: Infections of the sinuses can even cause blindness. Any vision changes with the finding of vision changes need immediate treatment. Oral antibiotics are sometimes effective with decongestants but surgical intervention is indicated in more severe cases.
