Foreign body: If you had a foreign body on the surface of the eye and you cannot find it your tears probably washed it from your eye. The eye and eyelids have a covering called the conjunctiva that would prevent a foreign body from migrating to the back of the eye. If you remain symptomatic you should see your eye doctor.

Abrasion / infection: This sounds like either a corneal infection, called a corneal ulcer, or a corneal abrasion. A foreign body can cause either, then fall out, leaving the cornea with an infection or an abrasion- a scratch on the cornea. Both can feel like something is in the eye. Go to your eye doctor for a diagnosis.
