Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com

For a brief one
The fact that the redness and light sensitivity disappeared completely shows that there has not been any significant problem within the eye.
Why is there still a sore/ache?
Common causes for redness , pain and light sensitivity are keratitis ( corneal inflammation/ulcer), iritis ( inflammation of the iris) or angle closure glaucoma. All these are also associated with decrease in vision and none would disappear without treatment.
How should I treat the sore/ache?
You can take an analgesic such as Tab.Acetaminophen 650 mg twice a day for a day or two.
Can I get that over the counter?
What common OTC has the mentioned tab....?
If the eye pain persists inspite of taking the analgesic for 2 days then you can consult an ophthalmologist for a closer look.
okay, I'll give that a try
Tylenol is the brand available in the US
would Ibuprofen help?
I would not recommend Ibuprofen( causes more gastritis and irritation).
Please feel free to ask follow up questions if any.
