I am sorry you are having so muhc irritation and pain in your right eye.

cutting grass and getting dust or allergens or foreign bodies in your eye can definitely cause much irritation of your eye.

you could have a bit of sand or dirt behind your eyelid which could still be scratching your cornea and eye

you need to see an eye doctor and have them flip your eyelid over to check for sand and dirt and foreign bodies under your eye lid.

you may need an antibiotic and steroid prescription eye drop for your eye

you may need to go on allergy medications to help reduce allergy inflammation in the eye as well

there are also allergy eye drops which could help

you need to see an ophthalmology eye doctor for evaluation and treatment of your eye irritation.

do you need help to find an eye doctor close to you?
