Pen pierced eye is a condition of mechanical trauma to the eye. Traumatic conditions in the eye like this should be examined by a doctor to determine whether there is damage to the eye that is dangerous or not. After trauma to the eye, you should not give eye drops until you make sure that the eye condition is safe using eye drops that are sold freely by doctors.
Mechanical trauma to the eye can be harmless, for example in the form of sub-conjunctival hemorrhage, but it can also be more dangerous, for example corneal ulcers, keratitis, hyphema, corneal edema, iridoplegia, lens subluxation, to retinal detachment. The eye sores can also become infected.
Therefore, I suggest that you check with an ophthalmologist first so that further examinations can be carried out to confirm the condition of your eyes. If necessary, an examination using a slit lamp and an ophthalmoscope. Then the doctor can provide the right treatment for you according to the results of your examination. Handling can be with drugs to surgery if the trauma is severe or to cause eye problems.
While waiting to see the doctor, you can do the following tips:
Avoid giving any drops without a doctor's recommendation, over-the-counter drops are generally intended for mild eye irritation or dry eyes, not for trauma to the eye.
Protect your eyes from bright light and dust, for example by wearing sunglasses
Don't rub your eyes
Rest your eyes
Hope this helps,
