What causes blurred vision along with severe pain above the left eye?

Left eye crossing, blurry vision when relaxed (not while focusing on something) sporadically for last four days. Acute headache now above my left eye. Saw ophthalmologists who found nothing wrong with my eye (the camera) but I am concern, with headache there is something wrong with muscle or nerves affecting my eye.

As per your clinical history is concerned, please follow like this:
1) Do a clinical examination by your Doctor [Neurologist] and to rule out other pathological causes, do [MRI] scan and if the report is normal, then follow as below.

Discuss with your treating Doctor following prescription medications like:
a) [Sumatriptan and Naproxen sodium] for pain
b) [Amitriptyline] for preventive medications which you need regularly

Do follow lifestyle modifications like this:
1) Try to avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your problem in the past, avoid them.
2) Try to reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco.
3) Make a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals.In addition, try to control stress.
4) Do exercise regularly. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming, and cycling.
5) Try to reduce the effects of estrogen.

Talk with your doctor about the appropriate alternatives or dosages for you if on birth control pills.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
