Side Effects Of Using Eye Drops For Eyes Affected By Battery Fluid?
Good afternoon doctor, why is it that my right eye, which was splashed by battery water, feels dry and suddenly hurts until I have a headache on the right and the sclera looks like there is shiny mucus, is that a danger in the future, even though when I splashed the battery, I immediately soaked my eyes I’m in the water and I’ve been to an ophthalmologist and the ophthalmologist said to check my eyes, the doctor said that my eyes are fine, the battery splashed and I routinely drip 4×1 drops of eye medication every day that is prescribed the ophthalmologist should not be used continuously, whether the effect of eye drops can make the doctor’s condition worse if used in the long term. Thank you, hopefully the doctor can answer my questions.
Good morning Rendi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are sorry for what happened to you. Liquids, whether they are too acidic or too alkaline can injure and cause damage to the eyes. And we appreciate your decision to soak your eyes in water, although it would be better if you use running water to wash your eyes and remove battery water from your eyes. This includes your decision to immediately have your eyes checked by an ophthalmologist, so overall, what you have done so far is correct.
Actually, after you go to an eye doctor, all that's left is to follow your doctor's advice and use eye medication according to the rules. If you do it according to what your doctor tells you, the eye drops should not have a bad effect. However, if you now feel that your eyes are dry and your head feels dizzy, there may be an increase in eye pressure and an infection in the part of the eye that was injured at that time.
Our advice, get your eyes checked again to an ophthalmologist, and until then, try not to use your eyes too often and it would be better if you cover them with gauze and bandages for a while. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
