In brief: Eye exam/head exam

Pain with eye movement requires an exam. An optometrist or ophthalmologist would be a good start and then if all is ok, a primary care provider would be a good next step.

Agree that pain with eye movement that radiates into the head would likely require exam and imaging. PCP is ok, It is hard to tell what approach is most cost effective with high deductible plan. I chose to recommend eye specialist, first, as the problem is highly likely occulo-orbital issue.
