It is imperative that you are evaluated by a physician who can make a definitive diagnosis and look for other associated problems. ...Read more

Please explain what do you do when you get hit in the eye?

Please explain what do you do when you get hit in the eye?

Wish you had ducked: Depends upon the type of hit. Was it a fist or softball in which case most of the energy will be absorbed by the bone. Ot was it a squash ball or flying debris like a metal fragment. Then the eye could be damaged and needs attention. If you can see well then probably you are OK. If the vision is compromised, or there is pus, or too much swelling, then see your ophthalmologist ...Read more

I was wondering what do you do when you get hit in the eye?

I was wondering what do you do when you get hit in the eye?

Depends: Did the hit just damage the lids and soft tissue or was the eye struck directly. Check the vision and if good, you can wait a while. Can you move the eye and do you see double. That would need evaluation. So if it seems to be a bruise to the soft tissue around the eye, you can wait but if there is more evident damage, then see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Why is it that you see a green light if you get hit in the eye?

Seeing "stars": A blow to the eye will stimulate the retina which will think that the disturbance from the shock of the hit is a light flash. The retina has no nerves of pain, or pressure or most other sensations It just has light and thinks any stimulus is light. The color is variable and can be green, or light, or red depending upon the power and angle of the blow and the portion of the retina hit. ...Read more

Is it bad if you get hit in the eye and the white part of your eye starts bleeding?

Is it bad if you get hit in the eye and the white part of your eye starts bleeding?

Not always: Bleeding in the white part of the eye is called subconjunctival hemorrhage. By itself, it is not serious, but it can cover something more serious like a laceration in the sclera (the white part of the eye. Additionally, the eye can have trauma to the retina, iris, and other structures when struck hard enough to cause bleeding. It is best to have it checked out. ...Read more

Not quite: Getting hit, sudden stops or turns can also place a weakened retina in jeopardy. It's not just one punch to the eye that will cause damage. ...Read more

If I hit myself in the eye with a scissor but my eye didn't really get red, and the irritation was gone after like 10 minutes, should I be worried?

If I hit myself in the eye with a scissor but my eye didn't really get red, and the irritation was gone after like 10 minutes, should I be worried?

Not necessarily.: If you have no pain and no change in vision, you are probably fine. Was your eye closed? If not and you cut or scratched your eyeball (which can sometimes not hurt), you do need to get seen right away. You also need to get seen if you have pain in your eyeball or blurry vision, or your pupil changes in size when compared with the other. ...Read more
