Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi and thanks for the query.
You do not need to see an Optometrist for this, you can go to an Urgent Care or an ER for an examination and topical eye drops.
For now you can use topical steroid eye drops with an antibiotic. For example, Dexamethasone plus Chloramphenicol, along with that cold fomentation and protection from intense light, wear sun glasses even in doors. Artificial tears are available OTC as well and should be used in such situations to prevent dryness.
Along with all this an anti allergic like Loratidine 10 mg twice a day should also be started.
But it is always best to have this examined in the ER setting, as the possibility to corneal abrasions, ulcers and other conditions affecting the eye that can have grave consequences should be ruled out. So, the best course of action will be to see a physician in the ER.
