Headaches and Eye Pain

For the past few weeks I have been suffering from eye pain and headaches. It started with a tenderness in the left eye. This then became a more constant irritation which has meant I find it hard to read the computer screen and bright light annoys me. Now I am getting headaches as well. My doctor initially thought it was sinitus but I went for a CT scan and that came back clear. But the blurred vision and headaches are still there. Can someone help me with what this might be as it is making my life miserable.

Hi

You seem to spend most of your time using the computer. If this is the case, then an eye problem has to be ruled out first. Your scan came back normal which is a good sign. However a more localized eye involvement has to be ruled out in your case.

Also, try to rest the eyes every hour after computer use. Get enough sleep and eat well. Only after possible underlying conditions have been ruled out that migraines and other forms of benign headaches be considered. In your case, the scan was normal thus, there is no  need for urgent intervention.
