Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
any loss of vision or blurry vision?
do you wear contacts?
any previous eye problems?
Common causes of painful red eye include:
1) Corneal ulcer -bacterial infection of the cornea. If untreated can lead to permanent blindness
2)Uveitis- inflammation of the internal lining of the eye which can lead to eye pain and sensitivity to light.
3) Acute glaucoma- although vision is lost gradually from this.
You need to seek medical attention right away because I feel that your vision may get worse from this condition if left untreated. I would see an opthomologist right away. If you cannot see one today make appt or go to the ER.
