  • It could be just irration. Or If you were contacts that is what it could also be. I would go to your doctor or even an eye doctor for a checkup just to be sure. Since you don't have any other symptoms, I would say that it would be anything serious, but I would still get it checked out.

  • Not trying to scare you, but glaucoma and retinopathy both can produce sensations of pressure in or around the eye. I would schedule for an eye exam with a pressure test and dialation to rule both out. Any regular optometrist has these tests available and Walmart is usually 50.00 for a complete eye exam if you do not have insurance.

  • Could be allergies too, if you press on your cheekbones and temples and it alleviates the pressure it may be a cause.. Generally you'll know when the allergies drain the pressure-eye headaches will subside.
