In brief: Depends

Take note of type of pain, rating on a scale of 1-10, when it happens/what are you doing, how long it lasts, radiating to or from anywhere, associated factors like with eye movement, things that make it better or worse, how well you see, etc.
; then have it looked at to rule out possible causes.

In brief: Eye pain

Discomfort in the eyes is common but frank pain is not.
If the eye is red, or the vision is disturbed, or you have had trauma then you should see an ophthalmologist as soon as possible. Don't leave this to chance.
