The differential for eye pain is quite broad. Unlike other symptoms, here is where you need to take a good history. But never forget to rule out the obvious.

How to Talk to a Patient with Eye Pain

DOCTOR: What seems to be the trouble? You look to be in awful distress.

PATIENT: Yes, doctor. My eyes! They ache, they burn, I can't stand the pain.

DOCTOR (after brief pause): Were you staring directly into the sun again?

PATIENT (after longer, awkward pause): Yes...

DOCTOR (disappointed): And what did we talk about last time?

PATIENT (head hung in equal disappointment): Don't stare directly into the sun.
