Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Increased sensitivity of the eye to light, to feel glare or pain when staring at bright light, may indicate inflammation in the eye. This type of inflammation can vary, ranging from mild, such as conjunctivitis (inflammation of the lining of the eye) or trichiasis (inflammation of the eye due to eyelashes that grow protruding into), to more severe, such as uveitis (inflammation of the uvea tract), keratitis (inflammation of the eye corneas), endofthalmitis (inflammation of the inner lining of the eyeball), and panofthalmitis (inflammation of the entire lining of the eyeball). Other conditions, such as acute closed-angle glaucoma (increased pressure in the eyeball due to blocked eye fluid flow), bleeding in the eye, retinal detachment (detachment of the retina from attachment), etc. can also make the eye feel painful when looking at light.
Your complaint, given the occurrence of post-collisions in the eye, you should not underestimate. It is feared that your complaint occurs due to serious eye component damage triggered by a collision, so it needs to be dealt with quickly and appropriately. Check with yourself directly to a doctor or ophthalmologist so that appropriate treatment is given. In the meantime, you can do it first:
Compress the eye with ice water or a cooled spoon
Don't use your eyes for excessive activities, including driving, staring at gadgets, reading small print
Protect the eyes from injury or entry of foreign objects, for example by using protective glasses when exercising
Do not hold eyes with dirty hands
Not always using excessive contact lenses or cosmetics around the eyes
Do not carelessly use eye drops or ointments without first seeing a doctor
Hope this helps ...
