It feels like there's something in my eye, which is making blinking that eye painful. It's 1 am here. What do I do?

Since about 11:30pm tonight, I've felt like there's something in my right eye. I've looked thoroughly and there doesn't seem to be anything there; my eye is just red from rubbing it. I've tried flushing my eye but can't stand it for very long. Visine isn't doing anything either. Blinking hurts; closing my eyes to try to go to sleep hurts. Do I just give up and try to sleep on it? Go to emerg? (My optometrist is in another city, 2 hours away; I don't have an optometrist in the city I'm currently in.) Am I just overreacting?
Other info: I wear contacts but they're out for the night. I had no problems with them today; my eye started hurting after I took the contacts out. It's possible that I may have scratched my eye when I was taking them out (my nails were long).
