Why Do I Have A Headache In My Eye
Few possibilities: If you find yourself squinting to see things better, you likely have some kind of vision problem, and a trip to your ophthalmologist will determine if it can be corrected with glasses, or if it represents something more serious.

I feel like I have pressure in my eyes. And this morning my eyes could not focus what causes that. Now i feel like i still have pressure in my eyes and a real bad headache.
These : These symptoms could be a sign of a migraine headache, sinus congestion, sinusitis, or eyelid swelling or even a brain tumor or pseudotumor. It is extremely unlikely to have acute (angle closure glaucoma) pressure elevation in both eyes simultaneously. Any ophthalmologist can measure the intraocular pressure and determine whether there really is elevated eye pressure. If the optic discs are swollen there may be elevated intracranial pressure and this would require an MRI or ct scan of the brain right away. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Sinus blockage could be present too without having a bacterial or viral infection. Try Afrin nasal spray as directed for no longer than 5 days.

Hi, I have been experiencing a tingling/numbing in my head above my right eye. I do have astigmatism but my glasses don't seem to help. Any suggestion?
Not a glasses prob.: Astigmatism is a type of refractive error, meaning the eye is curved more steeply in one direction than another (like a football is more steeply curved across the short length and gradually curved across the long length). Lenses can be made for glasses to correct this optical error. This should not lead to symptoms of numbness or tingling. This is probably completely unrelated to the eye. ...Read more

Any injury bad enough to cause iritis might also have led to retinal damage or other problems, to get checked! ...Read more

Medicines are available and useful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
