The Center for Headaches and Facial Pain under the direction of Dr. Klemons has been providing treatment for pain in the eyes and ears for more than three decades. Even in cases where the eye specialist or the ear, nose and throat specialist was unable to eliminate the pain, Dr. Klemons has been able to successfully eliminate the pain that the patients felt. He explains his ability to eliminate the pain when other physicians cannot as, “Simple.”
Dr. Klemons says that patients who sense pain in the eyes or ears are often feeling a pain that is actually coming from somewhere else. When a pain comes from one place and is then felt in another place it is known as referred pain. The most commonly understood example of “referred pain” is the pain felt in the left arm during a heart attack.
Similarly, there are more than 18 structures that are known to refer pain to the ear and there are a number of structures that refer pain to the eyes and sinuses. When a structure is injured, the pain may be felt in the eyes or ears and this is the simple explanation as to why ENT specialists or eye specialists are unable to find a reason for the pain—they simple did not look in the right place.
The structures that can cause referred pain include various muscles and ligaments. Additionally, low grade but painful infections in the jaw can also cause referred pain that is felt in the ears, eyes or sinuses. Dr. Klemons is able to successfully eliminate the pain felt in the eyes and ears by determining which structures are at fault and helping the patient to heal.
