Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I see you are offline.
Are you experiencing any changes in your vision in the involved eye or sensitivity to light,or has your eye gotten red since this has happened?
If it is teary and annoying as you say it is possible you may have scratched the cornea.
Do you have available at home any artificial tears?
If you have artificial tears available I would use those every couple if hours till you can be seen by your eye doctor later this morning or today.

Cold compressess are better to do since this just happened.
I do not see your resposes even though it says you are typing
Hi, and thaks for answering. Yes there is redness of my eye, not a lot, but irratated and running for sure. Also sensitive to light to a degree, not horrible, but i am not enjoying the computer screen at the moment, and have all lights turned down low. I have some cvs pharmacy lubricant eye drops for mild dry eye. It usually stings a little , so not sure if it would hurt more with the drops. The ice pack seem to be helping some.
Keep doing the drops till you can be seen by your eye doctor.
Perhaps drops like refresh liquigel or systane gel drops may be more comforting
Your eye doctor would evaluate you eye for a possible corneal abrasion and if neccessary
prescribe an antibiotic eye drop with a bandage contact lens or have you use artificial tears supplemented with an antibiotic ointment
Does this make sense
