Dear customer, Thanks for your question. It is unlikely for this symptom to be due to an STI since these infections are rare in adults and also they would not have developed so soon after exposure. Also the protected sex and condom will reduce your risk of exposure to most STI. And still if STI transmission occurred, then it would be rare for eyes to be the primary site of infection. Therefore though this is less likely to be due to an STI but still needs consultation with your doctor to know the cause and to give specific treatment. Take care.
