Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
First of all stop using the visine....that stuff will just irritate your eye more....
It sounds like you have a corneal abrasion from the bug. In the vast majority of cases this does not lead to a corneal infection and heals up without any long term damage within 24 to 36 hours.
However, until it heals.....and especially when you go into REM sleep tonight......you are gonna be a miserable puppy :(
I'd use natural tears to soothe your eye and put some bland ointment such as Refresh PM or lacrilube (there are many brand names) in your eye right before bedtime.
There is a small chance that one of the little hairs off the bugs leg got stuck under your eyelid or in your cornea....I've seen this on a number of occasions. So. If your eye is still bothering you tomorrow afternoon try to have an ophthalmologist take a look at you.
My pleasure. At least now you have an excuse for your golf game :) By the way, would you like to hear a funny golf joke my father-in-law just sent me today?
At no additional charge, of course ;)
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
