sudden severe eye pain on waking

What would case a sudden excruciating eye pain (one eye only) that wakes you from your sleep? When you get up you can barely open your eyes because of the pain and the eyes is teary. There was no inflammation and the eye was not red, just very painful. It felt a bit grainy. Even after an eye wash the pain is still there whenever you move the eye.

Lasts about 15 minutes to 45 minutes.  After the first sharp dagger in the eye waking me up, it feels like an eye full of sharp sand.  Hot compresses used to help but seem to have lost their effectiveness.
