Eye pain is often described as burning, sharp, shooting, dull, rough, a feeling of ""something in my eye,"" aching, pressure, throbbing, or stabbing. Sometimes pain originating from the eye is confused with other symptoms, such as a headache, sinus pain, toothache, or a migraine.
HOW IS EYE PAIN DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of eye pain depends on your symptoms. Mild eye pain that lasts for a day or two can be ignored, but if it persists beyond that and causes headache, decreased vision and nausea, you may need medical attention. Common diagnostic tests are:
• Dilating drops
• Slit-lamp test
• Pressure gauging in the eye
HOW IS EYE PAIN TREATED?
If you are unsure of the cause behind the pain in the eye, it is best to visit the doctor and get your vision checked. Depending on the severity of the Eye Pain, doctors plan the treatment of the eye. In most of the cases, any form of Eye Pain is treated by giving eye drops or antibiotics but a milder form of pain can be easily treated at home. While Eye Pain is easy to cure, it can occur frequently and to avoid it, it is advised to visit a Homeopath or Ayurvedic Doctor to take proper care of the eyes.
