Mild One Sided Eye Pain (Overview)

No fancy definition here, but on a scale of 0-10, mild pain affecting one eye would be a range of1-3. Mild pain would be tolerable and a quality that would not affect the ability to function. It’s more of a nuisance. Examples would include mild dry eyes, mild itching, mild foreign body sensation. However, persistent mild monocular pain should be evaluated by a EyeMD to help you discover the causes
