Our faces have a group of individual parts that make a whole complete structure, and they are all connected. If any person has an earache or even a sore throat, it is often accompanied by a symptom in another part of the facial region. It’s the same for a person who has sinusitis. Sinusitis is affecting the eyes of the patients.
The sinuses are located in the facial region. Problems in the sinuses can cause a feeling of pressure on the face, cheeks, by the nose, behind the eye, and forehead and even eye pain, feeling of fluid or fullness in the ears.
Since sinuses are located behind the eye and near the inner corners of the eyes it may be possible that eyes can be affected due to infections in the sinuses. After sinusitis, the body naturally tries to flush out the infection from the sinuses. The proper flow of mucus is blocked and causes feelings of facial pressure and pain, near the sinuses areas. The pressure behind the eyes is a good indication of a sinus infection.
Facial pressure is never ideal, and it should not be ignored. If the facial pressure persists for a week then visit a doctor to administer the best form of treatment. An ENT specialist can provide complete care that can help treat the eyes if they are irritated due to the sinuses, or refer the patient in the right direction if the eyes are affected by allergies.
It is always recommended to avoid self medications and prefer to visit an ENT specialist. For lasting relief, some non-surgical procedures exist, like the Balloon Sinus Dilation Procedure.
