In brief: Multiple additional
Eye problems mentioned, but sinus issues, migraine, tension ha's, hypertension, intracranial lesions, neck arthritis, thoracic outlet syndrome, giant cell arteritis, are additional causes of headaches.
Perhaps this needs an evaluation?

In brief: Get checked out
A good start at finding potential headache triggers would be to maintain a diary.
Every time you have a headache write down what you were doing, the foods you ate that day, alcohol, smoking, caffeine, stress, how much sleep you had the night before, eye strain, etc. Try to find patterns in your headache so that you can learn what things to avoid. Get checked by your doctor.
