Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Has there been any eye redness, discharge, itching, burning, tearing, sensitivity to light or decreased vision? Anything wrong with the eyelids?
No. It's just the lower right corner of my eye feels sore for some reason. Vision is fine
A sore eye can be the result of anything from dry eye, to an early stye forming to more internal eye inflammation such as episcleritis or iritis. The most common reason is dry eye, or an irritated or disrupted tear film. Have you had a cold or stomach flu recently or been around anyone with either of these or a red eye recently?
No, I haven't had the flu or been around those with a cold or flu (that I know of). Same thing with red eye...haven't been around those with it
Then this is very likely just due to a dry, irritated eye. I would just recommend to use some artificial tears 4-5x/day and cool compresses as much as you like. That will likely calm this down.
Okay, thanks for your help. I'll get some Artificial Tears. Have a great one.
