Eye-strain is the diagnosis given in the majority of cases in which a patient has pains in normal-looking eyes without any visual loss. These are forms of stress headache that occur in the region of the eye.

Very occasionally there may be an organic basis for the patient's complaint. These are discussed under aetiology.
