Eye pain.

Good day, I wear -7 prescription contact lenses and spectacles, alternatively. I often feel as if one of my eyes is being pulled from the socket. It is very painful and causes headaches as well. What could be causing this and what do I do about it? Thank you

Hi there

If this sensation only occurs during the time that your are wearing your contact lenses, it might be related to a discomfort from the lens. If it occurs all the time, please see your optometrist.

Best wishes!

i'm having an excruciating pain at the right side of my eyes. the last time i had that was 2015 and it all started again last week. what could be the problem? i use glasses and i don't thinks it has anything to do with that. the pain starts anytime, when am sleeping and when am awake.
