Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
Are you available for chat now?
Have you removed the contact lens ?
There is a possibility of the superficial layer of cornea being abraded or even ripped off.
But such abrasions heal very well with overnight eye patch with lubricating eye drops/ointment.
The chat is getting repeated. Yes, it is available OTC as lacrilube eye ointment. Usually the patch is removed the next morning. Lubricating eye drops can be coninued he next day onwards, n1 drop 4 times a day.
You can wait till next morning and if symptoms continue or worsen, then get the ye examined by an ophthalmologist.
You can take an analgesic to reduce the pain.
