Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. I think there are a couple of things that may have happened here. It's possible you have a corneal abrasion, or even an infected corneal abrasion (called an ulcer). It's also possible that you have inflammation within the eye called iritis related to this trauma.
If it's a corneal abrasion, it will usually get better on it's own in 48-72 hours, but using artificial tears 4-5x/day and/or lubricating eye ointment 2-3x/day as well as Tylenol or Ibuprofen will help until then. However, if you're doing these things and you're not getting better, or you are getting worse then you need to see an ophthalmologist as this could represent an infection that needs to be treated with prescription antibiotics or it could represent this traumatic iritis which needs to be treated with steroids. If your vision is severely worse and your pupil is a different shape than the other eye then this could represent some very serious trauma that needs to be dealt with immediately. Does that make sense?
