Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Do her eyes look white and normal to you?
Do they cross at all?
Does she complain that the light hurts?
Does she complain about not being able to see clearly?
Is she nauseated/throwing up?
yes no yes yes she has been nauseated no throwing up
Thank you for that extra information....and well said :)
The most likely cause of the "headache in her eye" is a migraine or sinus issue. When she was seen for the bacteria in her urine, was the headache discussed with her pediatrician?
yes it was but she saw nothing noteworthy
As a father of 5 myself I would still feel better if she had a complete eye exam by a pediatric ophthalmologist as one of the stops in the workup of her pain
Ok. Well, then, it is time to move on to a different doctor. I would start with the pediatric ophthalmologist. If that is normal, then I would consult with a pediatric neurologist/headache specialist.
I do want to take a moment to say that it is very, very unlikely that this is a brain tumor or something terrible like that....but all of us Grandparents always think of this one first ;)
I've got two of the little buggers myself :)
thank you for your input you stated what i felt
My pleasure. Have a great weekend and give my best to your granddaughter.
