Not red, but a little light sensitive.
Has the vision itself changed?
Are you still there?
My vision has not changed, except for having pain when I move my eyes
I keep having to close them every time I turn my head
I think that you are experiencing a common symptom associated with the body's generalized inflammation. When there is a fever, the central nervous system experiences this inflammation and since the eyes are connected to the brain, they often experience what the brain experiences and in this case, it is pain with eye movements as well as light sensitivity.
You can kind of think of it like something along the lines of how someone with meningitis might be very light sensitive. It's the same phenomenon. It is possible that there could be an intraocular inflammation associated with this illness you have which is called uveitis. But it doesn't seem as likely given that your eyes aren't really red. I suspect that this is going to get better as this systemic illness you have gets bettert.
In the meantime, I would do things that will control your systemic symptoms like taking ibuprofen and/or tylenol and also using cool compresses as you are doing. In addition, I would recommend using artificial tears 4-5x/day and that can also help control these symptoms. Does this make sense?
Yes, that does make sense
