Doctor, is it possible that it was because of my eyes?

Eye symptoms can occur due to sinusitis.

What do you have in your eyes?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I used to wear glasses before which I don't for years now but I should. And I was feeling light headed 2 days before I got the fever. Then headache the following day then fever.

It is not likely because of this.
