What's wrong with my eye. What should I do? I've been having a sharp pain whenever I blink with my right eye since yesterday
The ocular surface (including the cornea) has many nerve endings. If the surface cells are disrupted (as in an abrasion of the cornea, the presence of a foreign body, or an infection) pain can result. The reason you are feeling this with blinking is that your lid is likely moving across this injured part of the eye surace. The pain will not go away until this injury goes away.
