Lashes are lashing out

I developed a mascara allergy on Thursday at a dentist appointment. No, it doesn't make any sense to me either. What do I do now?

I thought it was pink eye, started antibiotic drops and was fine. Until last night, when I put mascara on again. Left eye got swollen and itchy and felt like there was a pebble in it. Right eye is fine.
I threw out the first tube of mascara and bought a new tube (both are cover girl or maybelline or whatever). So it's not that. I don't yet know if all eye makeup will also be a problem; I have health issues that could be causing it, but that's not really the issue. Just can't wear mascara anymore.
Has anyone dealt with this? What do you wear instead? I have long lashes, but they're pretty light, so I need something. Will more expensive brands be different? (I don't want to spend a million dollars on extension upkeep.)
