Default Woke up crazy pain in eye

Woke up this morning couldn't open my left eye. Felt like I got stabbed with a needle in front of the eye and an odd pain in behind the eye. Took a while to get to work to a point where I could open it and see. It still hurts now but vision is slightly blurry. Not sure if I can go to an optometrist today or the ER. But I know I'll just wait for hours in the ER.

Anyone have anything like this ?

No but I wouldn't be at work or posting online if I did! I'd either be in ER or urgent care center. You only get 1 set of eyes! They are kind of important. And by kind of I mean VERY! Well to me at least.

I was looking to schedule an appointment with an optometrist as I think I'm feeling a little better and bluriness is slowly going away. I'll get some eye drops in the meantime.

Ocular migraine? I've had those a couple times and they suck. Usually marked with a bright flashing streak in your eye, though.

No this was like someone poked you in the eye directly. Now it was just twitching a bit but my vision in it is not blurry anymore. I'll have to get an appointment though as its still painful.

I've been using clear eyes to help soothe the eye but it feels very dry and weird. Still has pains. Hopefully it's nothing bad. I need my vision or I would be out of a job lol.

I haven't got anything in the eye I'm very clean its strange I just wake up and feel as if I've been stabbed in the pupil.

Seems like my eye hasn't been bothering me since Saturday so I can wait a little before seeing the doc but not sure.

Some type of eye infection. Probably pink eye. Anyone fart on your pillow recently?

Seriously though, you have an eye infection.

Did you see any red in your eye, if you did subconjunctival hemorrhages.

Nope didn't have a popped blood vessel. It's been fine since. The clear eyes helped. I don't feel like spending money at the ophthalmologist.

Trust me, I did the same and in the end had to shell out the $35 bucks for an ophthalmologist after the optometrist gave me the wrong medication and made my eyes worse.

You guys seriously think going to an optometrist is not wise? My optometrist actually diagnosed me correctly. Better then an ER doctor. Maybe the optometrist you went to just got his credentials from university of pheonix or whatever lol. They are eye doctors they know there shit. Anyways what you have is a tear on your epithelium. Usually caused by dry eyes due to a lack of humidity or fluid in your eye. So when you initially blink upon waking up the eye tears a part of the epithelium. This tissue takes about a day or two to repair. However you must see either an optometrist or an ophthalmologist. Depending on the severity they
may put a contact lens on and antibiotics. But yeh bashing an optometrist? C'mon now.

Well it's better now. I got some eye drops and it healed itself. I'm not saying an optometrist won't be good but since my mom was a doc she did recommend an ophthalmologist because I did mention small flashes and stuff like that. I got better sleep and kept using my eye drops and it feels a lot better now. Spending a lot of time on a pc won't help either.

If you injured your eye before, deep scratch or puncture like corneal abrasions then months or years later you could have recurrent corneal errosion which typically presents while sleeping, causing extreme pain in the previously injured eye and temporary blurring or double vision.

When I was younger around 7 or so I would get poked in the eye a lot playing outside. Figures that's why it could have happened this time. Hmm anandtech has an app now ?
