Sensation above left temple

Over the past few weeks I have been experiencing a sensation in my left temple area.  At times this sensation is an awareness sensation, at other times it appears to be a pulling type sensation.  Stress seems to cause a pulling type sensation.  I've been wearing glasses on and off.  I'm still experimenting whether wearing the glasses alleviates the sensation; however, it helps but does not eliminate the sensation.  I have an appointment with my primary care physician in a few days.  I received a new glasses prescription over a year ago so its not as if my eyes are adjusting to this new eye glass prescription.  My gut feeling is something is going on with my optic nerve.  My left eye is my strong eye (20) and does most of the work.  My right eye is approx. (60).  Making my overall eyesight 20/60 or 20/80.  Can a straining optic nerve create the symptoms I'm describing.  Any guidance would be most appreciated.  Have a great day !!!

I doubt you would have this symptom from an optic nerve problem.  See you eye doctor.
