Hello, Welcome to Just Answer

During an acute sinusitis, the eye too feels a bit sore and one might even experience deep seated eyeball pain.
Since there is no redness, it is unlikely for you to have developed conjunctivitis.
Why would I be having discharge from one eye? Will the Cefdinir address the issue?
Though bacterial sinusitis and conjunctivitis can co-exist, it would manifest with redness, discharge and watering in case of bacterial conjunctivitis. Oral antibiotics do not have much effect on conjunctivitis and in case of a frank bacterial conjunctivitis additional eye drops would be needed. But it would be difficult to know if you do have bacterial conjunctivitis now only based on eye discharge ( with absence of redness , watering or matting of eyelashes by the discharge).
I guess you can continue with the present treatment of oral antibiotics for the sinusitis and look for symptoms to subside. In case the discharge continues in the eye and is associated with redness too, then you can consult an ophthalmologist for the start of antibiotic eye drops such as moxicillin eye drops.
I appreciate your advice.
Moxifloxacin eye drops.
