Hello, I am a 29 year old female. I have noticed a strange eye pain occasionally; it does not happen very often, may be a couple times a year. I experience pain around my eyes or in the eye muscles, I think, when I move my eyes to the far right, far left, all the way up and all the way down, no discomfort with normal eye movement. Sometimes I experience a slignt headahce, but no other symptoms. The pain usually persists for 3-4 days and goes away. I have yearly eye check ups and they are normal. My eye doctor said that the pain could be related to eye strain, but I have found that eye strain should not be present when waking up in the morning, and as I have mentioned, my eye pain persists for a couple of days when I make extreme eye movements.
Eye strain would not normally cause the type of pain you're describing. Your complaint is unusual and nothing "jumps out" as a likely diagnosis. Obviously you want to keey your vision central and not make extreme gaze efforts that bring the pain on. If it gets worse see an neuro-ophthalmologist and Eye MD physician that specializes in diagnosis of obscure causes.
