Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
How many hours has it been since the accident?
since about 11 am yesterday
It is possible you could have scratched your cornea. Most corneal scratches heal very rapidly, usually in a day or so.
It is possible you have a foreign body in the eye from the mascara wand.
I recommend you see an eye doctor for an evaluation.
I don't think so, I looked. The eye is very red and swollen and tearing.
You may considering seeing an optometrist.
If I had insurance I would.
should i put a patch over it as they did when i scratched the cornea before? I know they put some sort of numbing agent in the eye
for most scratches, it would have been significantly better by now if it happened 11am yesterday. That is why I suggest that there may be persistently irritating your eyes.
Most optometrist have very reasonable cash prices.
You may try the traditional retail places such as costco, walmart, sears, etc.
I thought I would have to go to an opthamologist.
They are usually open on saturdays.
ok, thanks XXXXX
Yes, ophthalmologists are good, but if cost is an issue, an optometrist is good to screen for serious problems.
