If your eye hurts when you blink it could be due to a problem in the cornea, or crystal, over the colored part of the eye or due to something on the inner surface of the eyelid. I would suggest making an appointment with an ophthalmologist who should be able to help you. ...Read more

My 51/2 yr old says her rt eye hurts its a little red says hurts to blink gave her allergy meds eye drops and ibprophen please help?

Poss foreign body: Hurting to blink suggests a speck of dust is under the upper eyelid. If you can gently pull the upper lid from the globe, and irrigate with eyewash or saline, you might dislodge the offending particle. If copious irrigation is unsuccessful, an ophthalmologist should be able to assess the situation with anesthetic drops. Antibiotic drops are a better choice than the allergy drops; Ibuprofen is okay. ...Read more
