Morning, Doc. Yesterday I woke my husband and his apes while he was stretching his arms, I hit his elbow hard enough. Initially I was sick for a while, then in the afternoon I felt frowns in my temples. Now, waking up my eyes feel a little aching, but my eyes look fine. What should I do? Is eye compress enough?

1 Answer:

Hello Novita,


Thank you for the question.

Hard impact in the eye can certainly trigger pain. This pain in the eyes, if not accompanied by serious symptoms, such as red eyes, swelling, vision problems, nausea, vomiting, etc., is often harmless. You can try to resolve your complaint first by:

Compress your eyes using cold water, sliced ​​cucumbers, or a cooled spoon
Don't overactivity that makes your eyes tired
Use protective eyewear so that the eye does not conquer foreign objects
Do not carelessly give ointments or drops to your eyes
If the pain is quite disturbing, you may take paracetamol

Mild pain in the eye will often improve within 1-3 days simply by following the tips above. So, you do not need to rush to see a doctor, so that your risk of contracting the disease (including COVID-19) can be smaller.


Conversely, if the pain does not improve at all, or even accompanied by signs of danger as mentioned above, do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor or eye doctor. Worry, your complaint refers to a more serious injury to the eye or surrounding areas, for example glaucoma, traumatic cataracts, vitreous hemorrhage, retinal detachment, migraine, brain hemorrhage, cluster headache, sinusitis, etc., which require prompt and proper management from the doctor.


Hope this helps ...
