Eye pain

Hi as the title states I am having eye pain only in my left eye, only when looking to the left. And also when I press on my eye socket on top, I can feel the pain. This has been going on for 5 days now.

I feel like this pain is muscle strain. But I can't be so sure.

What could possibly be the cause? I had an eye exam done about two months ago and everything was normal. But at that time I didn't feel this pain.

Please help. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Jessica,

    If you go to the opthalmologist doctor and the doctor rules out an eye problem, you may want to see a general Doctor because it may be a sinus problem. My sinus infection started with pain and pressure above only one eye. It felt so close to my eye I thought it was actually a problem with my eye and it hurt when I moved my eye. It also made my eye very dry causing more pain.

    Pain in the eye can have many causes. But often it is difficult to know why your eye hurts. A painful eye can produce various sensations and accompanying symptoms, which can help your eye doctor determine the cause of your discomfort. So visit your eye doctor to prevent complications of it.
