Introduction

Eye pain, also known as ocular pain, refers to any discomfort or pain experienced in or around the eye. It can be caused by various factors, including eye infections, injuries, dryness, or underlying medical conditions. Eye pain can significantly impact a person’s quality of life and may require prompt medical attention. The aim of this guide is to provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and managing eye pain.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: F01 Eye pain
– ICD-10 Code: H57.1 Ocular pain

Symptoms

  • Eye redness: The affected eye may appear red or bloodshot.
  • Eye discharge: The eye may produce excessive tears or discharge.
  • Blurred vision: Vision may become blurry or distorted.
  • Sensitivity to light: The eye may become more sensitive to light.
  • Eye swelling: The eyelids or the area around the eye may become swollen.
  • Foreign body sensation: The person may feel like there is something in their eye.
  • Eye discomfort or pain: The person may experience aching, burning, or sharp pain in or around the eye.

Causes

  • Eye infections: Bacterial, viral, or fungal infections can cause eye pain.
  • Eye injuries: Trauma to the eye, such as a scratch or foreign body, can lead to eye pain.
  • Dry eyes: Insufficient tear production or poor tear quality can cause eye pain.
  • Allergies: Allergic reactions can cause eye pain, itching, and redness.
  • Corneal abrasion: A scratch on the cornea can result in eye pain.
  • Glaucoma: Increased pressure within the eye can cause eye pain.
  • Conjunctivitis: Inflammation of the conjunctiva can lead to eye pain.
  • Sinusitis: Inflammation of the sinuses can cause referred eye pain.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the onset, duration, and progression of eye pain.
  • Ask about any recent eye injuries, infections, or exposure to allergens.
  • Inquire about other symptoms, such as redness, discharge, or changes in vision.
  • Assess the patient’s medical history, including any underlying medical conditions or medications that may contribute to eye pain.

Physical Examination

  • Inspect the affected eye for redness, swelling, discharge, or foreign bodies.
  • Assess visual acuity and perform a visual field examination.
  • Examine the eyelids, conjunctiva, cornea, and anterior chamber for any abnormalities.
  • Palpate the sinuses to evaluate for sinusitis-related eye pain.

Laboratory Tests

  • Complete blood count (CBC): To assess for signs of infection or inflammation.
  • Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or C-reactive protein (CRP): To evaluate for systemic inflammation.
  • Tear film evaluation: To assess tear production and quality in cases of dry eyes.
  • Allergy testing: To identify specific allergens that may be causing eye pain.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Slit-lamp examination: To examine the anterior segment of the eye in detail.
  • Fluorescein staining: To detect corneal abrasions or ulcers.
  • Tonometry: To measure intraocular pressure and assess for glaucoma.
  • Sinus imaging (CT or MRI): To evaluate for sinusitis-related eye pain.

Other Tests

  • Schirmer’s test: To measure tear production in cases of suspected dry eyes.
  • Corneal sensitivity testing: To assess corneal nerve function.
  • Intraocular pressure monitoring: To evaluate for fluctuations in intraocular pressure.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor the patient’s progress and response to treatment.
  • Educate the patient about the importance of proper eye hygiene and avoiding eye irritants.
  • Provide information on the potential complications of untreated eye pain and when to seek immediate medical attention.
