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 : 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.

You should present to your local eye doctor if possible as they will be able to provide a proper diagnoses and treatment. Thanks you. ...Read more
