Unfortunately, you need to see an ophthalmologist to examine the offending lash and remove it if needed.  It can definitely cause a corneal erosion or abrasion which can lead to a serious corneal ulcer.  If you can feel the lash rubbing against the eye - it needs to be removed by an ophthalmologist in your area.  Go ahead and make an appointment today.
