Eye pain

Find a symptom by its first letter

Definition

Eye pain can occur on the surface of your eye or within your eye’s deeper structures. Severe eye pain especially accompanied by any degree of vision loss may be a signal that you have a serious medical condition. Seek immediate medical attention.

Eye pain that’s on the surface of your eye might be described as itching, burning or shooting pain. Surface eye pain is often related to a foreign object in your eye, an eye infection, or anything that irritates or inflames the membrane covering the surface of your eye.

Causes

Burning feet that occurs infrequently or for a short time may simply occur because your feet are tired or you have an irritation such as athlete’s foot. Persistent or progressive burning feet, however, can be a symptom of nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy), perhaps due to diabetes, chronic alcohol use, exposure to certain toxins, certain B vitamin deficiencies or HIV.
