Hello, I am Dr. Longo.
This sensation you are feeling can truly be something that went into your eye, or a corneal abrasion (scratch). Both need to be handled in person. We can remove the object or clean the scratch, Bandage if needed, and then prescribe an antibiotic to prevent infection.Please see your local optometrist for help. They can see you in office for a minimal cost.
