Is It Possible To Go Blind From Getting Poked In The Eye
Eye injury: Blunt trauma to the eye can cause problems, including corneal abrasion (immediate pain), inflammation in the eye (often delayed onset), cataract, hemorrhage, retinal bruising, retinal tear, and retinal detachment. Any significant injury to the eye warrants evaluation by an ophthalmologist to rule out and treat complications.
Yes: Depends on the level of trauma. A pen can rupture the globe, cause a retinal tear or detachment, create retinal swelling, as well as many other potential problems. Blunt trauman injuries sucha as this require immediate examination.
I've been having these things called Eye Floaters for more than 5 months. I see a lot of them, especially on bright areas such as the sky or a bright light. Can I go blind from the Eye Floaters? Do they go away naturally or do I have to get treatment?

Whether: Whether or not to have surgery is entirely your decision. You must determine with your surgeon, what your current level of vision is and how much your decreased vision is affecting your ability to live your life. You surgeon should be able to give you a run down on what potential your eye has of seeing better. A cornea transplant is a major surgery that requires many post-op visits and does carry with it some risk. So, you must weigh the benefits and the risks of going through this elective procedure.See 2 more doctor answers
I have an astigmatism in my right eye, the eye doctor said only need to wear my glasses at night when I'm driving Can I get lazy eye or blind worried?
Not likely: Although you could definitely injure the eye. If this occurs, wash out the eye immediately with water. Then go to the nearest emergency department.
No: Color deficiency comes from inherited defects in the photoreceptors, or massive retinal loss from retinal illness (like advanced diabetes), optic nerve disease or rare strokes in the cerebral cortex affecting color. The bullet passage you described cannot be a cause.
No: A facial injury would not affect color vision.
Get it checked out: If you are having vision difficulties and/or floaters, you should make an appointment with an ophthalmologist for evaluation.
Hi doctors, was just wondering what is coreal- transplant can it restore the eye sight of a person who is partially blind?
Sometimes: Corneal transplantation is the surgery in which a diseased cornea (the window at the front of the eye) is removed and replaced with a donor cornea. In eyes otherwise normal, with the cornea being the only block to good vision, the procedure can be remarkably vision improving. If the eye sees poorly from something else, than this will not work.
Not usually: Most styes do not lead to more serious infections. Treat a stye by applying a warm washclothe to it three or four times per day. If it does not resolve in a week, see an ophthalmologist.
Is the first time I see a hsv-2 lesion in the eye, can still cause blindness? What OTC can I use to relief the pain and fast healing?
Taking a risk: How do you know this is HSV-2? Do you have it elsewhere? Herpes on the eye can be destructive and can scar, affecting the final vision permanently. Do you see a white spot on the cornea? And especially if you are a contact lens wearer? This could be an ulcer which could be dangerous. No OTC products will touch these types of infection. See your ophthalmologist quiickly.See 1 more doctor answer
