See a doctor: You should see your doctor or go to an urgent care as soon as you can. You can try clean warm water compresses to your eyes, which may bring some relief. Change these frequently, and make sure to wash your hands well, as this can be infectious. If you wear contacts, make sure you do not until this is completely resolved.
