There is a blunt pain on the surface of my eye. No blood shot eye or any thing to be seen. The only thing I remember happen to this eye is that few days back an eyelash got into it and I had a hard time getting it out, finally a Q-tip helped. Dont remember any scratch of sort. At first,it was only when I moved eye particular direction. The pain is not annoying, its mild but constant now after 4 days. What could be wrong.. Is there any home remedy for it or should I check with a doctor for this?

The most likely answer is that you have scratched your cornea.

As the white part or 'sclera' has no nerve endings, you won't be feeling any pain from there, however, the very thin layer which covers your iris and pupil (the cornea) has lots of nerves and is very painful when scratched. Book an appointment at your local opticians and let them have a look.
