Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you this morning.
How is her vision? Does it hurt a lot?
Do you have access to a digital camera that can put the picture on your computer? If so I can show you how to send it to me. A close up picture will help a lot.
Vision is fine, just a bit of pressure at site. does not hurt
okay will take a moment just need a site to send it to
Ok, sounds like she missed the cornea and has not stuck the stick all the way into her eye.
Here is the instructions for uploading a picture:
Upload your picture to the site tinypic.com by browsing for it as directed.
Once you do that it gives you a bunch of links you can use, one of which says "direct link for layouts"
Copy the link inside this box and then paste it into your justanswer dialog box and send it to your expert.
and go get a cup of coffee :o)
do you have an email
Are you having problems with the picture upload? The justanswer site block all external emails......
I've had very good luck with pictures using the above directions in the past.
I can see you are typing. I'm here.
the picture is uploaded
that didn't work. When you are at the tinypic site the first box says "browse" click on that button. It will then search your computer. Find your picture so it's location is listed inside that box.
everytime i paste the url is send you upload more pics?
i did that
and it did upload the pic
i cannot send it to you
no. The picture didn't upload. Let's make sure that all the steps have been done together. I'll send you a picture as a trial and we can do it together. Save your eye picture on your desktop and give it a name such as "stickineye" or something.
now, open the tinypic.com webpage.
sorry if I am being too simple for you, but I want to make sure that we are doing everything to get your picture uploaded.
still with me?
see if you can open that
OK. Use the browse button under the "upload images & videos" heading, next to the box labeled "file". Once you find the picture you will see something like " c:\users\pictures\stickintheeye
Next, on the same page, push the large "upload now!" button
enter the security code letters
i just sent you the link to the picture
what is that for?
i did all that was required to send the picture
were u able to open the link i sent you
could you open mine?
yours is acting up.....
yes and saw the stadium
On the final page, after you type in the silly letters, you use the bottom box on the "share this image" page. This box is labeled "Direct link for layouts" I don't think the other boxes work with the just answer system. Let's try again, if you don't mind. If we have to I can work without the pictures....pictures just make it a little easier to be sure.
I'm in no hurry :o)
My picture is where the Green Bay Packers play....
and a geocaching "Travel Bug" that went for a visit
i am the victim
i have lens implanted
eye not hurting...bloody
but i feel a bit of pressure in the corner where i took the point of th eplant
i can see fine
feels like something in the eye (corner) but plant to sturdy to break off
Ok. Like I thought. She missed the cornea. Is is a posterior chamber lens or is it an iris fixated anterior chamber lens? It sounds like the second one from your statement
Ya, you'll have a foreign body sensation with that one. Is your friend there with you, do you have access to qtips and saline?
i went in for cataracts and they implanted the lens into the tiny sac
Ok. A PCIOL then. Those are very stable and I don't think you hurt it.
yes i have q tips and saline
ok. This might hurt a little, but it will help me to get a better idea of whats going on.
i rinsed my eye with saline already and put an eye drop in it called Xibrom
so what should i do
swab the eye with the qtip and saline solution
Soak the qtip with saline. then look to your left and let your friend hold open your eyelids with one hand and take the qtip and rub by the cut. Your eye has three layers of tissue in this area. The conjunctive, the underlying tenons capsule and then the white, tough sclera -- the actual wall of your eye.
using the qtip, gently rub and see if you can tell what is cut. I bet at least the conjunctiva is,and tenons might be but the sclera should be intact. gonna hurt, sorry. No numbing drops available that work though our chat system :(
I mean I'll wait.
it stung a bit
do u suggest I go to an emergency walk in?
what does it look like as far as the layers cut?
or just rest the eye and wear sunglasses
i am not in any pain
and believe me ...i cut my eye once and was miserable
does it look like a flap of 'skin' (the conjunctiva) is cut? How much can you move it with the qtip?
jcannot move anything
OK. That is excellent! There is a very high chance that the blunt stick did no damage other then break a blood vessel and cause that ugly bruise.
so should i just rest the eye and stay out of the sun
live in florida
I can say this for two reasons: You have minimal to no pain. JC couldn't find a cut with the qtip, and your (kinda blurry) picture
also...i was going to go and ride my horses today...is that out of thf the questions
Staying out of the sun is not important
I've been raised by horses since I was 10......the outside of a horse is the best thing for making the inside of a yucky day better. Go for a ride.
ok thank you.
they are a calming factor
thank you and have a nice day
I believe you are ok. Of course, if you are concerned you would need an examination by an ophthalmologist to be 110% sure. I can give you a 95% chance, based on what we have done here today that you are OK.
my pleasure. Have a good ride. Now a word from our sponsors: :o)
again thank you
