- Headache and facial pain syndromes are a common public health problem. A primary challenge for the ophthalmologist is to determine if the headache or facial pain is a serious life-threatening condition or a benign disorder. The list of conditions that can result in a headache and facial pain is not only enormous, but ranges from benign conditions to vision- and life-threatening diseases. In some cases, the pain may be the result of a primary ophthalmic problem. In other situations, the pain syndrome may be due to a systemic or neurologic condition that requires urgent treatment or referral to a specialist. In either case, the ophthalmologist can play a vital role in the evaluation of patients with headache and facial pain syndromes by identifying or excluding specific ocular conditions and guiding the management of the problem. The International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD) has been designed to provide detailed diagnostic criteria to classify headache and facial pain syndromes for research and clinical purposes, and this system serves as the basis for this review
