Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you tonight
How did she singe her eyelashes?
How long ago did the happen?
her and friend was playing around with a bic lighter. It happened around 4pm yesterday.
Ouch. She may have burned the skin on her cornea, causing a corneal abrasion.
What can i do for her?
First of all, stop the visine. That has a vasoconstricter in it to get the red out that just irritates things
Okay she only did it once said it burn like crazy
use some natural tears -- you can get them at walmart etc -- and cool compresses. Also goop up her eye with lacrilube (also at walmart etc) before she goes to sleep tonight. Things should be feeling a lot better in the morning.
thank you Ill head there now.
When she goes into REM sleep tonight the pain of her eyes going back and forth under her lids may wake her up. Put in more lube, ice in a towel and try to get back to sleep
If things don't get better in 24hrs have her seen by an ophthalmologist. I do not think you need to go to the ER at this point from what you have told me.
Ok. Have a good night. I'm sure your daughter will be fine.
