Over the last week or so I have had occasional watering

Customer Question

Hi, over the last week or so I have had occasional watering and some slight soreness in my right eye. I'm prone to dryness and sometimes use over the counter artificial tears eye drops. Yesterday morning I woke up and there was a very small speck of white on my eye where my iris is. It felt like there was something in my eye but no redness.

Now the speck of white has gone away and I think there is now a slight cloudiness where it was. I don't wear contacts but I'm worried it's a corneal ulcer.

It still feels like there is something in my eye.
