In brief: Prevention!
Now that the event has already occurred, the first thing to try is artificial teardrops to help with any dryness that has resulted.
If this does not help, you should see an ophthalmologist to consider starting anti-inflammatory eyedrops. In all honesty, the best idea is to try to prevent this from occurring by wearing uv sunglasses next time!

In brief: A few possibilities
This could be due to allergies, dry eyes, or eye infections.
All can start or affect 1 eye first. The treatments are very different. For allergies, zaditor (ketotifen) is a good otc eye medicine. For dry eyes, lubricating tears are necessary. For infection, usually of the eyelids, start with eyelid warm compress and diluted baby shampoo scrubs. You should have a baseline exam with your eye doctor.
