Scratched my eyeball

My son poked my eye today and then it started to hurt A LOT and it feels like I have glass under my eyelid. I assume he scratched my eye. I can't see the scratch. My eye is red, is watery, painful, and when I look to the left, it hurts more. I flushed it with water.Closed my eye to let it water more. I fear that I'll wake up tomorrow with a seriously fucked up eye.

Have you ever had a scratch on your eye?

My daughter did that when she was about 9 months old. I had contacts in and she had a hang nail. It tore my contact and part of it was stuck in my eye. The worse pain ever. I went to the eye doctor that day, he flushed it out again and sent me on my way. I had to wear my glasses for a week and it quit hurting after about 2 days. Good luck, I know how bad it sucks.

Yes and it turned into a a sore on my eye the Dr. Called it an ulcer and explained it to be like a cold sore on your eye.  I hope yours doesn't get this bad because its one of the most painful things ever, this happened the day of my wedding! I had to go to ER and get numbing drops for my eye (they will not prescribe it but my maid of honor swiped the bottle so I had it throughout my wedding and reception thank God!) the pain lasted about a week and a half and I couldn't stand sunlight!  Best of luck to you, if it still bothers you tomorrow get to the Dr. Before it gets worse! If you wear contacts take them out!

Sounds like a scratched cornea.  You will probably got ointment and have to wear a patch for a week.

I got shot in the eyeball with a rubberband once. It was fun.
