Hello there

if you feel pressure, and recently had an exam, the most likely thing that is happening is that you are getting referred pressure from sinuses, perhaps there is some mild sinus inflammation or seasonal allergies. I would try using some anti allergy medicine like claritin for a week to see if the symptoms improve. If your eyes felt dry and scracthy, as if there was something in there, lubricating eye drops would be appropriate, I think you can try this and if it persists have an exam with an ophthalmologist, Regards
