Pain in the Eye

Let's first address the possibility of trauma to the eye or some object getting into the eye. This could have been a mild scratch or a small piece of dirt.

Do you think it is likely that:

  • there has been recent trauma to the head or directly to the eye

  • something got into the eye (including a chemical, an airborne particle or object)?

Yes, it is likely I had recent trauma or something in my eye.

No, I don't think this happened.
