I am fine throughout the day, but when I am at home and rarely when I am out in public, around dinner time, evening time, I start to get a some pain around my eye. Then I start blinking a lot. Sometimes, it gets uncontrollable. It feels more like squinting to relieve some of the pain and pressure in my head. Sometimes I also have a slight panting with the blinking.

I have seen many eye doctors with none being able to detect a physical problem. I also believe I suffer from anxiety, for which I started taking medicine. Any ideas what this is? headache, eye pain, a tic?

  • Have you been to an opthalmologist, not just an oculist or optometrist? Night blinking was listed as a symptom of several diseases of the eye. Do your eyes look different? Red, inflamed etc. I've heard of blinking as a tic, but not in combination with pain. Try to schedule an appointment late in the day. Does something happen at home that causes you stress? Any allergies or mold problems in the house. Are you cooking with Teflon? It bothers many people. Start playing detective the minute you walk in the door.

  • Yes, I've been to several eye doctors, including the Duke Eye Center. No doctor could find anything besides dry eye. Sometimes it starts in my car on the way home, or only when I am eating. Strange I know. Plus, its not all the time, off and on. I've been tested for allergies also, and am only allergic to weeds and outside plants.
