Question
Hello
I woke up this morning with strange feel in the right corner or right eye, I looked to see if there is a scratch, hair nothing.if feels like when I'm in the shower and got water inside my eye
Do you have any idea?
I'm putting right now warm compress

Answer
Dear Samia,

Usually a minor abrasion on the corneal epithelium could feel like the symptoms you describe.
It should settle down on its own.
If the symptoms persist after 24 hours, best visit a local eye clinic and have the cornea examined.
You can try some over-the-counter lubricating eye drops to soothe the eye in the interim peiod
Hope this helps,
Best
