It sounds like an insect bite/sting. Eyes are delicate and can be easily damaged. I would get the vet to have a look - better safe than sorry.

I meant by an insect - there are still some daft wasps out there - they're a bit mental this time of year as well - I also so a hornet (eek) yesterday and they're nasty b*ggers !
