Inflammation: Your eye could have one of several things. You might have uveitis, an internal sterile inflammation which can be serious. You might have corneal ulcer, a focal infection needing antibiotics. You could have viral conjunctivitis, or allergy. You should see your ophthalmologist as soon as possible to get diagnosis and treatment.
