Is It Dangerous If The Eyes Are Injured By A Foreign Object Until It Is Red And Bleeding?
.. I want to ask If the eyes are injured by a foreign object until it is red (like there is blood clotting) and bleeding, is it dangerous ?? Is it safe if given eye drops ?? And if the eyes heal later will return to normal ?? Thank you.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Bleeding that can occur on the eyeball due to exposure to foreign objects, namely:
1. Subconjunctival bleeding, namely bleeding that occurs under the conjunctival layer (the outermost layer of the eye on the whites of the eye). Minor bleeding can stop on its own and be reabsorbed by the body. If a lot of bleeding can accumulate so that it leaves like a brownish-colored spot on the whites of the eyes.
2. Hyphema, which is bleeding in the front of the eye chamber. If a little bleeding will also be absorbed by the body itself. However, if the bleeding is more than a third of the front eye chambers, then the eye doctor needs further treatment. Because if left unchecked can cause glaucoma and other complications.
For that, consult your eye doctor immediately. The doctor will conduct medical question and answer and physical examination of the eye using a funduscopy and slit lamp.
Any disease condition that affects the eye can cause vision problems. Do not give any eye drops without the eye doctor's knowledge.
Thus hopefully useful.
