Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi I am Dr. Lewis and I would like to answer your question.
Can you tell me how your vision is in your eye?
My vision is normal, its just the burning that is worrying me.
Do you have an ophthalmologist that you see for normal eye examinations?
OK I have just done a search on cactus sap in the eye. I can cause a keratoconjunctivitis - which is an inflammation of the surface of the eye. Since you have irrigated the eye and rinsed with tears and your eye is still burning, I think you will need some treatment.
OK Thanks, I have had keratocojunctavitis before so I dont want it again so I shall take myself off to the hospital. Thanks
I don't think you need to go to the hospital. There are quite a few emergency care centers that are adequate.
Could you please give me a list please
They are simple to find. Either look on your computer or phone book for walk-in emergency 24 hour care. I don't know where you are located but most are staffed by local primary care docs.
Thanks for your help. I shall do that now. Over and out. Glenys
Glad I could be of help. Let me know how you make out.
