Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. So you have a soreness or achy pain to the side and behind your eyes? Is this associated with any certain activity or time of day?

Doctor DanB : How long has this been going on? Have you had a cold or upper respiratory/sinus infection recently?
Customer: Are you still there. Clint
Doctor DanB : Yes, Clint, did you see my last questions? Doctor DanB says: How long has this been going on? Have you had a cold or upper respiratory/sinus infection recently?

Do you spend long hours reading or on the computer? Do you wear glasses or contacts? If so are they prescription glasses or just OTC readers?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i do not use a computer much or read for long hours I have glasses but just use them to read small print
Expert:  Dr. Dan B. replied 2 years ago.
Are they prescription? If so, how old is the prescription? If they are OTC readers, what is the strength?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The glasses are presciption and were just checked by the optometrist I don't use them much
Expert:  Dr. Dan B. replied 2 years ago.
I think there are a few things that can cause this. It's possible that this is, as you said, a viral infection that has affected both the eyes and ears. If that's the case, then it will likely run it's course over 2-4 weeks. It's also possible that this is an inner ear inflammation or infection and the resultant dizziness has your eyes working overtime to compensate for your lack of balance, thus causing your eye symptoms. However, it's also possible that you could have an eye/orbital inflammation causing some dysfunction of the muscles that move the eye. Because only an exam by an ophthalmilogist is going to be able to sort this out, I would recommend seeing an ophthalmologist to have a complete examination. Does that make sense?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
, , Thank you your assessment sounds good
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
, If it helps I had a inner ear virus about a year ago my ears have been ringing and I have been dizzy for the last two weeks
Expert:  Dr. Dan B. replied 2 years ago.

My opinion is solely informative and does not constitute a formal medical opinion or recommendation. For a formal medical opinion and/or recommendation you must see an eye doctor.  Thanks for your inquiry!
