Is it unusual to take topamax (topiramate) for migraines and still have eye pain?

In brief: No

Most migraine prophylactic medications do not "cure" migraines.
Instead, success is measured in decreased frequency and intensity of the migraines.

if vision blurs and you have pain see your doctor as toprimate can sometimes be associated with a rare type of glaucoma

In brief: No

There is no medication that is the total answer for migraine.
If you have occular migraine, topamax (topiramate) may or may not help. Make sure your eye pain is related to your migraine and not glaucoma or some other primary eye disease.
