Question regarding injected conjunctiva in one eye

I had an, in what is called in medical parlance, injected conjunctiva on waking up which gave me slight twinges of pain throughout the day and then went away the next day. Is it the beginning of keratitis (I had it about 4 years ago and then another infection about 10 years ago in the same eye) or conjunctivitis? Should I move my appointment with the ophthalmologist forward?

P.S. Dr. Hagan it will be of great help if you can tell me if by the region where the pain is localised is it possible to tell if it is an infection of the cornea or of the conjunctiva? I had pain in the conjunctival region covering the sclera, and what seemed to be a large single blood vessel among smaller blood vessels visible at the top of my eyeball.

Conjunctivitis is not usually painful. And not I can't.
