I recently took for coke for the 1st time, ever since i've had pain behind my eye reaching down into my face and ear. What damage might I have caused?

In brief: Likely none

Don't do cocaine.
Likely no long term damage. If it persists, get an ophthalmologist to do a thorough exam.

In brief: Get an eye exam

There are many substances added to street drugs that can get into your eyes from the bloodstream. A thorough eye exam will ensure that you have not caused any permanent damage.
The capillaries inside the eye are very sensitve to talc and other foreign substances that may be in your cocaine. Pure Cocaine is a vasoconstrictor and shrinks down blood vessels.

In brief: Other concerns

I would also be worried about carotid artery dissection.
It's worth getting evaluated by an md.
