Question blurry spot in eye

hey...i'm new to this...but i've been pretty worried for the past two days...i was lighting a cigarette and i guess the flame was too high and i don't even remember what happened, but I guess the heat or fumes or something came up to high and burned some of my eyelashes and my eyebrow. I was fine until a few hours later, on the same side it happened my right eye had a blurry spot, towards the bottom of my eye, now when i blink it's blurry and it feels like theres omthing in there and it just doesn't feel right, my vision isnt the same. I'm pretty scared and I'm not sure if it will heal in time or what I should do. any help would be appreciaited...thank you.

Re: blurry spot in eye

Best to see an eye doctor for evaluation. May have a burn to the cornea, scelera and it needs to be evaluted and treated if necessary. Without having it looked at you're at risk for infection, scarring and permanent damage to the eye.
Also keep your fingers away from the eye, as you don't want to introduce any more bacteria into the eye. And probably not a good idea to self treat on this one.
See the doctor soon.

And patch the eye in the meantime.
