Hello sir!  The pain and the swelling after your upper tooth extraction  radiates towards the cheek bones and lower portion of the eyes, therefore the correlation.  Actually vision is not affected in anyway post extraction.

Kindly visit your dentist

It's a safe procedure. Don't affect the eyesight. It's a myth.
