Do you get migraines?  
I'm just asking because I get migraines and they involve pain in my eye on whichever side of my head is affected.  
And they can be triggered by lighting conditions, especially flashing lights such as you get with OCT.
Is it gone yet?
Some people have success treating migraine with ibuprofin (such as advil).  For me nothing works except sumatriptan (such as imitrex) for you need a prescription.
