How is the eye now?
Are you still tearing?
Are you still typing? I do not see your response.
There must be a glitch in the system...
I just hope that you an see what I am typing
Much better, though I still 'baby' it to avoid minor pain when trying to view something near or when needing to frequently changing focus when going about performing tasks.
So you notice it only when you look down or try to focus?
I believe what may have happened is a small foreign body may have flown into your eye and given you a very small abrasion. We blink less when trying to focus and this makes the eye a bit more vulnerable. It may have even just been a lash or dry skin.
There is also a condition that causes spasms in the eye muscles of the eye when trying to focus but that condition does not cause tearing.
And it usually occurs in teenagers or young adults.
Are you still with me?
OK. It seems to be steadily getting better and it sounds like it's not much to be concerned about.
I agree- if it is a small abrasion it will fully heal in a few hours- 24h at most. Keep the eye well lubricated with artificial tears and no contact lenses if you do wear lenses.
Is there anything else that I can answer for you?
That's all. Thank you.
