Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you for the question.
Since how long has the pain been there?
Any associated redness in the corner of the eye?
Any other eye symptom ?
I look forward to your replies.
Thank you for the reply and additional information.
One of the possibilities is that of an internal hordeolum( infection of the modified sebaceous gland called meibomian glands, present in the eyelid). It can cause pain, tenderness and swelling. If there is not much swelling then the other possibility is that of infection of only one gland resulting in meibomitis. In both the conditions treatment is in the form of warm compresses for 10 minutes thrice a day, for about a week. Most lesions subside completely by this treatment and do not require anything else. However do get an eye exam done if the pain persists or worsens .
