Eyes have been bothering me a lot lately, for maybe a week now.

At first it was my left eye, for maybe a little under a week it was constantly burning (especially behind) or red, etc. Now its my right eye, it hurts a little bit behind, possibly a bit of pressure and one of the blood vessels is sticking out pretty far, I can feel it when I move my eye around. This occurred last night, and seemed to be better when I woke up, but about 20 minutes later I noticed it back again. I've already made an appointment with an ophthalmologist, but its going to be 2 months before my appointment(soonest date they had for morning.), and I'm pretty scared. I haven't noticed anything particularly different in my vision, though I'm pretty sure I'm very nearsighted, and have never gotten glasses or contacts, or a real eye appointment for that. I also noticed one of my eyes is sticking out slightly further than the other, and when I look through one eye, things seem slightly closer/further and a bit upwards/downwards than the other eye(doesn't really affect my vision in any other way though.) I'm 20, and have no job or insurance, so its not something that's easy for me, the appointment alone will cost $205, and I doubt that includes anything more than a checkup. Do I have anything to be worried about, if so what should I do? How much will it cost?
