In brief: Eye pain

The best way to start the evaluation would be to see an ophthalmologist for a complete eye examination to see if an explanation can be found for your symptoms or to decide what he next step should be.
The initial impression of your family doctor suggests a sinusitis and the use of the antibiotic. If this does not resolve the issue then i would suggest following through with an ophthalmologist.

With your description, it could be many different issues such as preseptal or orbital cellulitis, angle closure glaucoma, or something altogether different.
I would recommend close followup with your regular doctor and an complete eye exam as soon as possible.
