In brief: Eye pain

Eye pain may be due to many factors, such as an eyelash in the eye, dry eye, a corneal abrasion, etc.
If the pain persists, do not rub your eye. Instead, try artificial tears, such as theratears, every hour for 5 or 6 hours. If the pain continues, seek help from your local ophthalmologist.
