eye pain

My husband was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabeties. Just recently he's been having this pain in both of his eyes where it makes it so he won't open them anymore. This pain comes with a headache that he says is like a throbbing sensation in the top and front of his head right above his eyes.Now for some reason this only happens like one to two hours before he gets ready to go to sleep, on occasion it will happen during the day but not usually. His blood sugar has been high lately and getting it to go down is much harder than it was when he was first diagnosed. How do i get the ache to go away or has anyone had this problem and knows what it might be so i can mention it to the doctor because even he doesn't seem to know?

Eye problem is side effect of diabetes.Follow this and the diabetes will be controlled and so the side effects will disappear gradually.Do come back to report progress, so others may benefit.
These pranayam exercises will help control the diabetes and the side effects.Build up the timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume later.The benefits will be noticed in weeks as the sugar level is checked daily.Over the long tern the diabetes will be in full control and the medicine can be reduced in consultation with the doctor.
Anulom Vilom –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril
then -keeping the left nostril closed deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day(maximum 60 minutes in one day).
Children under 15 years -  do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.

Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day.(Max 60 min/day)
Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.

Also everyday press the centre point of the palm of your hand 40 times with the thumb and press the tips of all fingers 40 times each.

im just wondering my husband was the one you said should try the pranayam technique. apon his first trying after like one or two minutes of doing this he got really light headed and dizzy.i am just wondering if this will eventually subside or will it be like this all the time? also you said if he feels like this he should stop and start again later, about how long should he wait to start over again?

Post your question on the Ask A Doctor's forum. Dr Ramsetty maybe able to answer your question.

The pranayam technique sends oxygenated blood to the brain and the rest of the body.
So start with  5 minutes on first day and build up the timing gradually over several days.Sit in a comfortable position and do it gently.If you feel dizzy or light headed, stop and resume after one minute or longer (depending on how comfortable you feel).Both of you can do it and compare notes, as it helps healthy people feel better as well.

Missed one point -
The dizzy spells will subside as the body gets used to the extra oxygen in the blood.Keep reporting the progress.It is good that you have made a start.

Has you husband not seen a doctor about his cranial pain? An MRI may be needed to determine the root cause. Breathing exercises may help but they sure won't cure your husband if there is a true underlying disease going on. Take him to a doctor for complete checkup ASAP.
