    Well, in my opinion, lyme disease can lead to eye pain in some degree. First, you should know that Lyme disease is an infection that is transmitted through the bite of a tick infected with a bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi. And because of that, of course, some symptoms may occur too. For example, you may feel fatigue all the time. Also, high fever can be possible. By the way, high blood pressure can just occur to you. And at that moment, it will also affect your eyes, leading to some eye problems. What is the most common one is that it can just cause eye pain. Also, eye floaters can occur too. Anyway, just be careful about it.

    Lyme disease Is a type of infection disease. And it is not related to eyes. As far as i know, people got lyme disease usually suffer headache, fever and chills and lacking of energy. If you let it untreated, you may also suffer pain and weakness in the arms or legs. Also, you may experience poor memory. If you suffered from it, please don't worry, it can be treated with antibiotics.Just consult your doctor and treat it immediately.

    Lyme disease is a bacterial infection through a bite from a specific type of tick that with a bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi. Because of the bacterium and infections, eyes are easily get infected, so you may suffer from eye pains. Besides, severe lyme disease may also cause flu-like symptoms, such as fever, headaches, fatigue, muscle aches, etc. To prevent lyme disease, you should avoid bing ticked and you can wear long sleeves and light colour clothes or just apply some tick repellents with DEET before going out. If you suffer from lyme disease unfortunately, you should consult a doctor and receive antibiotics treatment.
