Something went into my eye in todays windy weather (c. 8 hours

Resolved Question:

Something went into my eye in today's windy weather (c. 8 hours ago) and my eye is so sore. Is now watery and blood shot, can't see anything there. A pharmacist recommended an eye bath which I have administered 3 times and I've also tried to flush out the eye with cooled boiled water. Could the eye be scratched? Grateful for any advice you could give. Regards, Heather

you have done conservative treatment and if it did not help, you may have an abrasion or even a small particulate in the cornea or on the underside of the lid. I suggest you get it checked out today by an eye doctor, you can go to an urgent care or call your eye doctor, Regards, XXXXX XXXXX
