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 .
Sorry to know about your problem which is keeping you awake so late in the night. It is likely that there could have been micro abrasions of the cornea due to the rubbing which is causing he severe burning sensation. You have done the right thing by putting refresh tears eye drops and liquid gel. If burning persists then lubricating eye ointment can be put and the eye can be patched overnight. The corneal epithelium heals very well wih this treatment.
I hope you feel better in the morning . However in case the symptoms persist or worsen, then do get the eye examined by an ophthalmologist for a closer look.
If symptoms reduce in the morning then continue with the lubricating eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day for 4 to 5 days.
