Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It seems like you are having injury to the eye with corner of zip lock bag. It can be either injury to the conjunctiva or cornea. This requires antibiotic eye drops. If it wont respond or if the pain is increasing then you need to consult eye doctor for treatment of corneal injury.
Thank you
