Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
do you have any pain?
no there's no pain
it is just swollen on this one part of my eye ball, and my eye is blood shot
that is what i meant my the bulge
the rubbing likely caused swelling of the lining of your eyes, the conjunctiva.
it may have mild bleeding in it as well called a subconjunctival hemorrhage. though the appearance is alarming, it will resolve with time in 1-2 weeks, similar to a bruise.
use artificial tears to help with any irritation of the eyes. if you develop pain, decreased in vision, or double vision, you should see an eye doctor promptly.
ok, so there is nothing i can do right now to make the swelling lessen?
cold compresses can help with the swelling.
i was doing that, ill keep doing it. it is not easy to keep closed comfortably.
if it is worsening, then don't hesitate to see a doctor for evaluation.
ok i won't. is permanent eye sight damage possible if it is just the lining that is swollen? like i said, i can see fine, it just looks and feels really strange because there is a bulge
if the lining is swollen, it should resolve with time.
ok, thank you! you've made me worry less.
