I have had conjunctivitis and I have been treated by ophthalmologist with Tobradex which helped in the past. I experienced this about two years ago, and although the condition is not severe, the redness has gone away. I am now experiencing extreme searing pain and scratchiness and a burning sensation in my eyes.

I had cataract surgery six weeks ago. Two days after the surgery, severe sharp pains and burning in my right eye woke me in the middle of the night.

I had shooting sharp pain to my left eye. I went to ER and I went to eye specialist. The shooting pain has stopped, but my eye still hurts and keeps me up all night.

I had surgery yesterday to have a chemo port installed. Had bilateral eye pain, as if something scratchy was coating both eyeballs, upon waking up. It has abated somewhat today, but still there, along with watering. I am a type 2 diabetic, but with no glaucoma history.

I was working in the garage and got dust in my eye. The next two days my eye got worse and worse until I couldn't bear it. Monday morning I went to the eye doctor and he removed a pollen seed from under my eyelid!!! All better :)

I had an injury to my left eye when I was hit in the eye with my son's toy.

I had cataract surgery in October 2009. A large section of the lens and many lens fragments were dropped into the vitreous and onto the retina. A retina surgery performed a vitrectomy. He was not able to remove all fragments. It is now June and although I have been told that the retina has healed well beyond expectations by this time, I have a lot of pain in my eye and a number of floaters are making it very hard to focus. I haven't been given much information from the surgeons other than that I should be happy that I have vision and my eye may still improve.

The eye pain that I experience is due to migraines. I usually get the pain on one side of my head. I would first get the pain in my eye, then I would get a migraine.

I had eye pain in my pupil, which was associated with a headache I was having. It was very painful.

I have a sharp stabbing pain in my left eye when I bend over. Just began last night. No change in vision and not every time I bend over. But painful enough to really take notice.

I have glaucoma and I'm only 20 I've been in and out of the hospital for all my life with uvitus which then developed into secondary glaucoma. I had the big operation (that I can't remember the name of) about a year ago. Everything went well, but then I was told I have a cataract forming.

I was in San Antonio on a very hot day. While on (vacation) I had a soda with ice at a noon meal. I sipped through a straw. I couldn't stand the pain in my eye. I had to stop drinking it. Later I had a glass of ice water. I could not drink it through a straw as it hurt so much it brought tears to my eye. It also happened with another cold drink, as long as I drank it out of the glass it was ok, but with a straw it was too painful. It was similar to an "ice cream headache" except worse. Otherwise I am in excellent health.

I got punched in eye. It is not a black eye, but it's pink and feels like something is stabbing me in eye.
