In brief: Very rarely
There are many infections which can result from a tick bite.
In the USA, lyme disease is by far the most common tick associated infection. There have been a variety of different eye complaints that lyme disease patients have reported. The medical science behind eye disease and lyme disease is very poorly understood. Several physicians would be needed to confirm a case of lyme related eye disease.
