Feels pressure above eye, headache on frontal lobe. What is the most common cause?

Hi. I am experiencing pressure above my right eye. This also adds to a mild headache on my right frontal lobe . Pain is sporadic and has existed for only a few hours now. I am a computer science graduate student and it needs to be said that i sit in front of my laptop for hours every day. What would you suggest is the most common reason?.

It seems from the history that you are having pressure above the eyes and headache in the frontal lobe. The most common causes for this reason is sinusitis.
The other causes need to be considered are eye problems like refractive error, primary headaches like migraine, tension headache and cluster headache.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
