The Eyes Of A Toddler Are Caught By Blunt Objects?
Hi, my toddler’s eye (4 years) was stuck with a blunt object (the handle of a steenlish spoon) which caused his eyes to be red, watery, and continued to come out of dirt. It has been more than 12 hours since the incident but the eyes are still red. Please help if this is a danger. Must be given certain drugs. Because since before, we haven’t given any medicine. Just wash water.
Hello Diah, Thank you for the question.
Any injury to the eye should require further examination by a doctor. Injury to the eye can cause red eyes, bleeding in the conjunctiva of the eye, or the surface of the eye. In order to determine if there is no more serious condition, you should bring your child to consult a doctor first. The doctor will need to do an examination of your child's eyes. If a wound is found on the surface of the eye, the doctor will give you certain eye drops. If not, the doctor will give you other eye drops. This examination is needed to determine what treatment is right for your child. Do not delay this consultation because if the wound on the surface of the eye is not treated properly it can cause scar tissue to form which can impair one's vision. In the meantime, keep your child's eyes free from exposure to air and air pollution.
Hope this information is helpful.
