Welcome to Just Answer:

It is likely that you have strained the left eye muscles on the left side. I suggest that you use over the counter Zaditor eye drop 4 times on the left eye for about 1 week, warm/hot compresses to the area on the left eye twice daily and Aleve (naproxen) 1-2 pills twice daily with food. If this fails to resolve in 1week I suggest that you follow-up with your eye doctor for closer evaluation to exclude preseptal cellulitis (infection), and with CT Scan of the left eye orbit to exclude orbital cellulitis. If there is infection, then you with need about 10 to 14 days of oral and topical antibiotics.
