ER, or eye doctor: An ophthalmologist (medical eye doctor) should check now. He has magnifying equipment that gives a good exam of the eyeball and eyelids. The eye doctor can see infection, irritation or inflammation, corneal abrasion, something stuck in the eye, etc... The ER can help if no eye doctor is available right away. In one's 60's, if it is angle-closure glaucoma it is an eye emergency.
