Optometrist here! Need a bit more info though. Do you have any loss of vision? Light sensitivity? Discharge from the eye? Do you have normal blood pressure? How bad is your breathlessness? Let me know and will try to help.

Thanks for getting back seems to have got a bit better now and I have got my breath back. My eye just aches and has stopped throbbing, but is still watering.

Sounds like you might have a viral infection in the eye. These are usually self limitind and resolve in 24 hours. However, if it persists for longer it would be woth seeing your optician. Hope it clears soon
