Yesterday I noticed a peculiar feeling in my left eye. Its kind of in between discomfort and pain, sort of like a slight bruise.
Trouble is I have no idea whats wrong. At first I thought I somehow bruised my eyelid since the discomfort happened when I blinked. But when I checked in the mirror, my eyelid was fine. I tested to see if it felt funny if I didn’t blink for a bit. No wierd feeling as long as I didn’t blink.
This leads me to worry that I did something to my cornea :eek: I haven’t gotten anything in my eye that I’m aware of, and don’t have allergies. Any ideas?
Yeah, but the cornea is a pretty freaky part of the human body. I mean you’ve got this tissue that’s more or less transparent, and yet has nerves, readily available oxygen supply, and constant exposure to the environment. Plus, the fact that the cornea is constantly being rubbed by another wierd little flap of flesh without showing signs of obvious wear (well, maybe my left eye is an exception :mad: )
Sounds too me like a slight eye infection, you should speak to your Doc maybe or have a word with your chemist. Doctors kinda treat these as emergencies and see you asap. IMO a bad infection is he worst pain I have ever had, it’s like someone is squeezing your eyeball and sticking needles into it at the same time. When I get lesser infections it does feel like a bruise and When I look in the mirror I expect to see a black eye-ball but as you say it looks normal.
Sinus problems can also make it ache above your eyeballs, sort of in the socket under the eyebrow. Sinus also makes teeth ache, so it may be that you have a cold or virus coming on. But please see your doctor to make sure.
