Does TMJ Cause Eye Pain?
With all these confusing possibilities, how can you tell if TMJ is the cause of your eye pain? It’s not easy, but it can be done.
First, talk to your family doctor or eye doctor about your eye pain. It’s good to eliminate any potential causes of eye pain, like acute glaucoma or conjunctivitis.
Second, consider when your eye pain tends to flare up. Does it seem to follow periods of intense jaw activity? This might be a voluntary activity like talking and chewing, or it could be an activity like clenching and grinding your teeth (bruxism). Remember, you might be grinding your teeth while you sleep.
Finally, check whether you have other TMJ symptoms like jaw popping and clicking, jaw pain, tooth wear, and ear symptoms.
If you think TMJ is the cause of your eye pain, schedule an appointment with our neuromuscular dentists for testing and diagnosis.
