Thanks for your query.

I would like to know some more details on the problem you have to understand better and opine specifically.
Do you feel like there is increased pressure in the eye balls ?
Do you have blurred vision ?
Do you see redness in the eyes ?
Have you taken any medication for the problem ?

Waiting for your reply.

Thanks for writing back.

The description of the symptoms you provided fits briefly into a condition called Glaucoma specially in its initial stages.The intermittent presentation, mild dull pain in the eyes and tenderness on touch.

I suggest you to consult a Opthalmologist who can perform a test on you called Tonometry which measures pressure inside the eye ball.The test is very sensitive and can identify the condition in its early stages.Initiating the treatment in early stages will ensure maximum safety from the condition.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
