Right eye

Left eye
Left eye  
I have strange sore is only on the right side of right eye like there is so something stuck but I look there is nothing no redness or eye lash I haven't been putting makeup lately just woke up with it my left eye is fine im putting my regular eye drop presarvatives and I put earlier warm compress and now cold
I'm not sure what it is maybe cause I didn't sleep good last nite.
I had inflammation in my eye before I used predforte for 5 months on and off And on  and then off for a week saw my dr last week he said I don't have inflammation anymore only the old cells so I doubt its the iritis of uveitis cause he wouldnt want give my next appt in 6 months.
I'n guessing dry eye or lack of sleep what do you think? I included pictures
Thank you

Hi Samia,
The eyes look overall pretty calm, the redness may be from exposure/dryness or they may be mild pinguecula that are a little irritated.  The detail is lacking so I couldn't tell if there is any small bump within the redness.  either way just use non preserved lubricating drops.  I don't see a need for warm compresses but cool ones may make it feel better along with the drops.  use sunglasses outside and get enough sleep and stay hydrated.
hope it helps,
