Hello Donna I'm Dr Chip

Any redness to your eye?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Not really
Eye Doctor: Dr. Chip, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 10 months ago

Any problems with your vision?

Ask Your Own Eye Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No
It only hurts every so often like something is in it
Eye Doctor: Dr. Chip, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 10 months ago

OK

You may have a corneal abrasion then

For now I suggest Some Visine eye drops and some ibuprofen for the pain

But if this doesn't resolve in another day or two you need to see your doctor to check for the corneal abrasion since at that point you might need prescription antibiotic eye drops

Please let me know if you need any more information Donna
