Your : Your daughter should be evaluated by her physician as soon as possible today. Based on the exam she may be referred to an ophthalmologist for treatment. Failure to diagnose and manage the problem could result in permanent damage and vision loss. She should not go to school as she might have a contagious condition.

Should be examined: she may have a foreign body under the upper eyelid or a scratched cornea. She should have an eye examination if this does not clear in 24 hours
