Since you have pain in the eye with fall of foreign body, with burning of the eye with lubricating eye drops , indicates a lesion of the cornea. It is better to get the eye examined at the earliest and not wait till tomorrow . Discontinue the wear of contacts till the cornea heals completely.

You will need a detailed eye examination of the eyes on the slit lamp to know the corneal involvement. If only superficial cornea is affected you will need antibiotic eye drops and ointment .

Thanks and best wishes
