In brief: Pain

Retinal detachment does not cause eye pain.
The symptom are floaters, flashes of light and partial or complete vision loss. Your eye pain can be from high Blood pressure, sinus issues, migraine, dry eyes, or compression source behind the eye. You should see an ophthalmologist for exam.

I have had cases where eye pain did occur with retinal detachment, so never say never and diseases do not read books.
