Eye Pain After Possessing A Foreign Object?
Hi. About 9 days ago my eye was stuck with wood chips when using a grinding machine. That day I went straight to the eye specialist and the dirt was removed. The doctor said my cornea had blisters and then given medicine. For several days my eyes had been getting better but still a little bit blurry but already no longer painful. After 9 days my eyes began to red again and felt painful. Many white dirt that often comes out of the eye. Is it due to contact with debris or because of eye pain?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The inclusion of sharp and strongly bounced wood chips from the grinding machine has the potential to cause inflammation and damage to various eye components, can be confined to the outer area (such as the conjunctiva), and can also involve deeper eye components (such as the cornea, uvea tract, ball lining eyes, and so on).
Your eyes are blister, pain, redness, blurry, accompanied by the discharge of many white secretions can indicate the inflammation. Not only that, the white secretions from your eyes can also indicate a secondary infection in the inflamed eye, for example if previously you often held your eyes using unclean hands. As for some of the conditions that might be causing your complaints right now are conjunctivitis, uveitis, keratitis, and so on.
Before it's too late, we recommend that you check yourself back to the doctor or ophthalmologist, right. Through a thorough physical examination, or assisted with further examination using a slit lamp, doctors can often detect if there are serious conditions that require further management. Meanwhile, do not carelessly provide treatment to your eyes without direct advice from a doctor. Always maintain the condition of your eyes to keep it clean, also clean the secretions that come out with gauze or tissue clean, do not immediately use your hands. Rest your eyes first from exhausting activities, including excessive reading or staring at gadgets for too long. Use protective goggles if you want to do outdoor activities, so as to prevent the eyes from entering dangerous foreign objects. To help relieve your current eye condition, you can also drop artificial tears into your eyes.
Hope this helps ...
