In brief: Recurrent erosion
Multiple causes but a classic cause is a condition known as recurrent erosion syndrome.
It can also be from run of mill dry eyes.

In brief: Headache
Headaches, light sensitivity and other causes can be at work.
If this has been happening for some time, it could be dry eyes or an inflammation. If this is a recent event, and occurs daily, have an eye doctor take a look. There is often a simple explanation for the irritation, and possibly an easy fix.
