In brief: Scratch or iritis

A sudden corneal scratch can cause this.
If your eyes get very dry or you rub them, you might get a small scratch which hurts, makes your eyes water and become sensitive to sunlight. Alternative, you may have an iritis (swelling inside the eye). If it stays for a several hours, get checked.
