Hello!

If he is asleep now then wait and first thing this AM you may call and have him seen at an opthalmologist office. I would suspect that a cornea scratch may be the issue. Other injury is possible. Most scratches of cornea do heal very quickly.. I think best to have him checked by opthalmologist but at this hour I think best to avoid the ER route...

I hope that this is helpful! let me know if you have further questions or discussion! I will be happy to get back with you! Best Regards!
