I have a reoccurring issue with my right eye. It feels like there is something in it for about a day, then goes away and returns a few days later. I thought it was allergies but it’s always just in my right eye.
There are many conditions that can cause a foreign body sensation like you describe including dry eyes, blepharitis (swollen eyelids), allergies, a foreign body, environmental toxins, and many others. You should see your Eye MD to determine the cause and appropriate treatment.
