Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
How is your vision right now? Also, were either of you wearing contact lenses? What was the pH when you tested it?
no contacts, and vision is ok, a little cloudy but mostly just sandy feeling
the ph wasn't too low, like a point
So, say around 7.4ish?
If you look in the mirror right now, how does your eye look to you?
not red, they look ok
we were in for a while, so i'm sure that caused some irratation too
the only thing really odd is some halo's around bright lights
Ok. Well. Good news. I think you have got a mild case of chemical keratitis. Everything should be ok within 24 hours. For the meantime I would use artificial tears as often as you like during the day today and put cool compresses on your eyes.
Also, fix that pH before you use the hot tub again :)
it's already draining
The halo's are from swelling of your cornea. That will resolve with no residual damage.
what should we watch for in case of emergancy
I don't think there will be any emergency at this point....things should continue to get better but, if you notice a marked decrease in your vision, increasing pain or goopy discharge (not just tearing) then you should consult an ophthalmologist.
That being said I believe you and your friend should be just fine.
Does this make sense to you?
My pleasure. Have a good day.
