Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Welcome to HCM.
I think your symptoms could be due to Trigeminal Neuralgia. Since you have not mentioned your age and other systemic diseases you are suffering from, I think you must visit a neurologist to confirm the same.

You might need to take the basic blood investigations and an MRI/MRA to find the exact cause for this and treat accordingly.

Get an appointment and consult before it worsens.
Take care.
