See eye doc: Get baby shampoo and put one drop on your cupped hand and dilute with water. Take your other hand's index finger and stir it around and wipe your lids with your finger. Then put warm wet wash cloth on eyes for five minutes. Put cloth back under warm water when cools. Use artificial tears four times a day. Don't wear any contacts. Do this until you see your eye doctor promptly.
