Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com

Since there is watering from the eye along with pain, I suspect that there is a likelihood of a corneal abrasion( just like a scratch on the superficial layer of the cornea). Usually such abrasions heal well with lubricant eye drops or ointment and patching for 24 hours. You can use over the counter lubricating eye drops such as Refresh tears and patch the eye overnight. If the pain and watering from the eye persists even after 24-48 hours, then there is a suspicion of an infection there or even a corneal ulcer. In such as case do get the eye examined by an ophthalmologist ASAP.
But in case the symptoms subside just with lubricating eye drops and patching then it would indicate towards a corneal abrasion only. You can continue using the eye drops for a week.
Please feel free to ask follow up questions if any.
