Hello Dry eyes and raised pressure are two separate issues. However brow ache can be linked to the raised pressure. A pressure of 21 doesnt really signify anything in itself. That too just one reading. The nerve condition, corneal thickness Visual Fields and OCT etc  are few other parameters which need to be looked at before commenting on anything. There are people for whom pressure of 21 is normal also. So don't worry.
Next Steps
Manage your dry eyes. That might take care of the pain as well. Share any reports if you have so I can help you better.
Health Tips
If the problem persists please do visit a local ophthalmologist.
