Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

Your symptoms suggest superficial ulceration on the cornea. This does not hinder the vision but is significantly discomforting. There is a small risk of infection too. So you may consider visiting your doctor for antibiotic and analgesic eye drops. Meanwhile ice compresses may be soothing.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

You can also take oral Ibuprofen or acetaminophen (paracetamol) for the pain.

And do not rub the eye.

It is privilege assisting you.
