I was shot very close to my nose but still in my right eye at around 6:45 pm. I was able to keep my eye open with no issues about 10 minutes later, although it was still sore and I had blackedout vision in the right side of my eye and a bad headache. I got home around 7:10pm, took 2 advil and napped for 3 hours. When I woke up, the pain was still there but much less severe (for my eye), and my headache is gone. However, there's a fairly noticable red spot on my eye where the shot hit. Could this be a future threat?
See an eye MD in the morning. You could even call one tonight for reassurance, You need to talk to a doctor who will examine your eyes. Our MD is on vacation, and there are a lot of posts. But this is also the best action for you.
