Good evening, I want to ask a question 4 weeks ago my right eye was splashed with battery water, but I have checked with an ophthalmologist, the doctor said that my eyes are fine, but I’m curious why my white eye is cloudy, the color is not bright, what are the effects? the battery water will appear in the next day, but now my vision is normal, there are people who say the effect will occur after the next 5 years can blindness occur, that’s just a question, hopefully the doctor can help. thank you

Hi Randy,


Battery water contains sulfuric acid which can cause eye injury. Acids are corrosive, and can change properties, agglomerate and precipitate proteins on the cornea, which causes the formation of a barrier that prevents the acid from entering deeper. In contrast to alkaline substances which will usually cause more severe injury to the eye.


Usually, if it's just a splash and immediate first aid and treatment to an ophthalmologist are carried out, injuries caused by this acid can heal without causing visual disturbances. Long-term complaints that may arise after an eye injury due to chemicals, one of which is dry eyes. If you feel any of these complaints or there are other complaints, you should consult an ophthalmologist.


But of course you need to make sure whether the white part of your eye (sclera) is indeed cloudy due to a previous injury or because of something else. Compare with the other eye, is it really different or not. If different, you can have it checked by an ophthalmologist again so that the cause can be identified.


Regards,
