Eye irritation, possible scratch?
Hello. Yesterday I was leaving for work, and just after I got in my car I felt something in my eye, the same feeling as when I get an eyelash or something else stuck in it. I rubbed it a bit (bad idea I know) because that usually moves it away into a corner so it doesn't blur my vision (after that it usually goes away on its own). It didn't go away all day, and after I got home I looked in the mirror and saw what looks like 2 very small transparent "dots" on my sclera, just slightly to the left of my iris. At first I thought it was debris or dirt, so I put in some eye drops, which didn't help, so I then rinsed my eye out with water for a few minutes - still didn't help - so I went in with a q-tip and tried to see if the dots would move, and they don't. It's very annoying, especially when I blink, not particularly painful, just an annoyance. Also every once in a while after blinking my vision in that eye will be slightly blurry until I blink a few more times.
Is it a corneal scratch or something similar? I can't think of anything that would've caused it, unless some dirt flew in my eye that morning and the scratch resulted from me rubbing it. It's a bit late on Saturday to find an appointment with an eye doctor, and I'd rather not go if it's something minor that will heal on its own. Any advice or answers are greatly appreciated.
