Eye strain may result in headaches and eye pain, and this usually is caused by poor lighting or excessive computer use. In addition to headache and eye pain, eye strain may cause the eyes to feel scratchy or uncomfortable.

Symptoms of a brain tumor include headache and eye pain, and most headaches caused by brain tumors do not respond to over-the-counter pain medications.

A family doctor may recommend an eye examination to evaluate vision or eye changes. If headaches continue, a CT scan or MRI may be ordered, along with blood work, to determine the cause of the pain.
