Eye Pain

Alternate Names : Ocular Pain, Pain in the Eye

Eye Pain | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

Diagnosis of eye pain begins with the history and physical exam. This may be all that is needed in some cases. In other cases, examination of the eyes with special equipment or tests may be needed.

Blood tests may be done if inflammation of the eye, such as uveitis, is thought to be from another condition. If a headache is the suspected cause, an imaging test may be ordered. For instance, a cranial CT scan may be ordered if a brain tumor is suspected.
