It seems from the history that your 4 year old son is having eye pain with fever. It is common to have eye pain in fever because of referred pain from headache and from eye infection as a result of infection.
This requires treatment of fever and general symptoms. For eye pain, antibiotic eye drops and anti-inflammatory drugs are sufficient.

Thank you
