If you had a personal physician you would not have to go to the ER. Also if your "eye doctor" was a non-MD optometrist and not a MD ophthalmologist you have not had the eye exam your condition warrants.

You need to see a primary care physician tomorrow if possible, also if you did not see an Eye MD see one. In the USA find one at www.aao.org
