Welcome to HCM.
Your discomfort is most likely due to foreign body still lodged in your eye. Look at a mirror close by and see whether you are able to see any particle in the transparent part of the eye ( cornea
). Take a shallow bowl or a hand full of water and try blinking in it.
If you still feel the pain, then consult in emergency as the dust particle can be removed only under a slit lamp microscope in an ophthalmologist's office .
Never rub your eyes as it can cause the superficial layer of the cornea to give away(epithelial defect ) causing more trouble.
So, consult at the earliest and get relieved soon. :)
