    Feels like eye area is bruised?!
    yustar posted:
    I've had this feeling where my left eye feels bruised, yet my it looks completely fine. My pupils are the same size, my eye isn't red, puffy or have any bumps near the area. It feels as though it is sore or bruised around my inner left eye corner up to my lid. I noticed the slight pain when I was using a cottonball to take off my eyemakeup, but I don't wear much and I always remove it every night. My right eye is fine, it's just my left one. What could this be? The pain isn't extremely overbearing, just a little worrisome.
    Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
    Very hard to know exactly what might be causing your mild discomfort. Is it possible that might have directly swiped your eye with the cotton ball and that you might have a corneal abrasion that does not heal completely (recurrent corneal erosion)?

    Smartest idea is to get a complete eye exam to try to determine the cause of the discomfort.
