eye irritation

I got contact lense stuck in my eye and I dug around for 30 minutes to get it out, now my eye is hurting.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

You could have corneal (the transparent portion in front of the eye) abrasions, this causes pain, light sensitivity and watering of the eye. The pain could also be due to iritis, conjunctival tears or scleral inflammation . You will need to consult your primary care physician at the earliest for further evaluation. He will examine you and may refer you to an ophthalmologist if the need arises.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
