Scarlet Eyes Due To An Accident?
Good evening, I want to ask, at that time I had an accident 3 months ago, I had a hard impact and my left eyelid was torn and my cheekbones were broken. Then I had a big operation putting pen on my cheek and pinching a torn wound in my left eye. But after finishing the operation until now my eyes are always red. And recently every time I glanced to the left, my vision became somewhat shaded and somewhat dizzy. And sometimes my eyes look more prominent. What do you think the doctor says? Does it have something to do with the collision I experienced?
Hello Black Sensei,
Blunt trauma to the eye can cause many abnormalities in the eyes both acute (immediately appear after the incident) and can also appear back (late onset). The top of the cheekbone is the base of the orbital cavity where the eyeball is. Disorders of the bone can cause disturbances in the position and movement of the eyeball resulting in asymmetrical eyeballs right and left (squint) and double vision.
Eye complaints that you feel that can accompany eye trauma are:
Increased eyeball pressure
Foreign objects in the eye
Dislocation of the eyepiece
Most likely if the occurrence is close to the eye complaint can be caused by previous eye collision. In your case, I advise you to go directly to an ophthalmologist. Also explain in a sequence the history of trauma experienced and what actions have been done. It is better to see a doctor in the same place where the bone surgery is performed.
Complaints of red eyes, blurred and prominent eyes should not be taken lightly. Abnormalities that are not treated immediately such as a retrobulbar hematoma can cause increased eye pressure which then permanently damages the eye nerves and causes blindness. Therefore it is very important to do early detection of these abnormalities, so that appropriate treatment can be given and severe complications can be prevented. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
