Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us for advice.

Schedule an appointment with your eye doctor. It is likely that the pain is the result of an abrasion to the cornea of your eye. A corneal abrasion is a scratch on the eye's cornea. The cornea is the clear, protective covering over the iris, which is the colored part of the eye, and the pupil, which is the black circle in the middle of the eye.

Antibiotic eye drops or ointment may be recommended to prevent an infection in cases of corneal abrasion. Medicated eye drops to ease pain and inflammation may also be used.

Sometimes, doctors temporarily patch the scratched eye. A minor scratch should heal on its own in one to three days.
