hello there

it is normal to feel some more foreign body sensation and also have some redness. However, I would expect that to resolve within the next day or two for sure. If your eye does not feel better by the morning, continue the tears, and purchase refresh PM ointment and place it in your eyes when yougo to sleep tomorrow night. If you still have discomfort in 48 hours, you should be seen by an eye doctor. I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
