left eye hurting
hello! i started to feel this pain in my left eye just today. the part that is hurting is behind my eyelids. i work in an office who is usually in front of my computer 75% of my 9 hour shift. the pain is on and off and if i apply pressure, it wont hurt that much. im thinking that it has something to do with lack of sleep or work related. please help. thanks in advance.

If its your eyelid it could be a early stye or eyelid infection. In that case use warm compresses and if a raised red tender area develops see an Eye MD for a diagnosis and antibiotic eye drops.

If could be a dry spot on your cornea. In that case artificial tears used every 30 minutes this evening might help.

If it worsens see and Eye MD tomorrow.  you can find one at www.aao.org
