Help- My eyes feel like they are dilated...

I have a very odd feeling in both of my eyes... it feels like they have been dilated, although they haven't.  They almost feel as if they are bugging out of my head, yet when I look in the mirror, my pupils look just fine.

I've searched just about everywhere online, and I cannot figure out what is going on with my eyes.  This has happened on a few occasions, but always seems to go away, however, it's really bothersome right now.

Is this something I need to seek medical attention for?

Since you've had it before you likely do not need to go to the ER but I would schedule a medical eye exam with an Eye MD ophthlamologist. Find one at www.aao.org

Thank you for the advice.  I will follow-up with an ophthlamologist.
