Last night around 5 PM, I had a sharp pain in my right eye

Resolved Question:

Last night around 5 PM, I had a sharp pain in my right eye near my tear duct. I had a few reoccurences last night, but thus far have no vision issues. I had no headache or strange discharges, but now I'm having some similar pains in my left eye. What should I do?

Sharp pains are typically surface issues related to dry eye syndrome. With the lack of any visual symptoms, this is typically not worrisome. I would suggest purchasing a lubricating eye drop such as Refresh Celluvisc and using it every 2 hours in both eyes. It should resolve the issue in a day or 2, if not see your eye doc for a check.
