Treat The Affected Eye Until It Is Red?
, my niece has her eyes stuck to the scissors plug but it just turns a little red just right on the spot. How is that?
Hello Ellyn, thank you for your question
Scissors are sharp objects that have the potential to cause sharp trauma to the eye, including:
a tear (laceration), either on the eyelid or conjunctiva, an injury to the cornea or sclera, and even has the potential to cause a tear (rupture) to break the muscles that move the eyeball. Any sharp trauma to the eye should not be underestimated. If the trauma involves the cornea, given its role as a medium of refraction, it is likely that vision problems will occur. Therefore, it would be better if your nephew's eyes were examined directly by an ophthalmologist or emergency room at the nearest hospital.
The doctor will perform an examination using a special instrument (slit lamp) to determine which eye structure is involved and problematic. After knowing the eye condition, then the doctor will determine the appropriate treatment steps.
While waiting for the doctor's examination, here are the following suggestions while at home:
cold compress on the eye that has been traumatized by bandaging the eye with gauze to see a doctor. So, hopefully this is useful
