Difficult to say what the cause of the problem is. As you know from the internet there are may conditions that may result in the loss of an eye. I suspect in your case that there may have been the development of a corneal ulcer and that may have ruptured resulting in the loss of the ocular contents. If that is the case then removal of the eye will ultimately be curative. Has the hamster felt pain..this is a very difficult question to address as animals percieve and can react to different pain thresholds. There may have been some discomfort as I suspect that if the condition was very painful ten there may have been loss of appetite e.t.c. The main objective is that you took your beloved hamster to the vet to get treated.
