hi

Dr. PG :

welcome to just answer

Dr. PG :

from the symptoms you are describing there are a few possibilities in your case-

Dr. PG :

- there might be a small foreign body under your eyelid or on your cornea (black portion of eye)

Dr. PG :

- an increase in pressure of your eye or glaucoma

Dr. PG :

- an inflammation in your eye or uveitis

Dr. PG :

in all the above possibilities, you would need to be evaluated by an ophthalmologist as soon as possible

Dr. PG :

a foreign body if present can lead to severe infections

Dr. PG :

if yu have glaucoma you need pressure lowering eye drops and for uveitis you would need intensive anti-inflammatory medication

Dr. PG :

So, I would recommend you to consult an Ophthalmologist as soon as possible

Dr. PG :
