Does an Occlusion Cause Pain?

Does an occlusion in the eye cause pain in the socket surrounding the eye?
I am not certain what you mean by an "occlusion in the eye." If you are referring to the occlusion of a retinal artery or vein (a blockage of veins in the back of the eye), there should not be pain in the socket around the eye unless the patient develops a rare complication of a blood vessel occlusion called "neovascular glaucoma" where there is higher than normal pressure in the eye. Please be sure to see an ophthalmologist if you have eye pain.
