    I have a sore eye. = I have an eyesore. ????

    You're right, it should read,

    I have a sore in my eye.
    I have an eye that is sore.
    I have a sore eye.

    Note, 'eyesore' sounds fine to me, if it means, a small sore inside the eye , but you won't find that meaning in the dictionary. It hasn't made it into the books, yet.
