What causes eye soreness?

Hi my 5 year old boy gets very tired all of a sudden, he goes quite pale and quite often complains of sore eyes which I think could be a headache behind his eyes. We have had his eyes tested for eye strain etc. Sometimes he also says he has a sore tummy but never throws up. This happens sometimes a couple of days a week or not for several weeks. In between he seems a normal happy pre-schooler. Thanks
