In brief: Pain

Corneal abrasion, a loss of the cellular skin covering the cornea at some point, is intensely painful causing striking redness, and light sensitivity.
Most who have one don't question the diagnosis but cry out for help. See your ophthalmolgist right away if you suspect this condition.
