Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com
Are you available for chat now?
When you close the other eye and look through the injured eye alone, is the vision blurred or hazy?
Slightly, yes. It looks like there is something small blocking the corner of my eye
Is the swelling in the white of the eye similar to this?
I think so. It is hard to see, and definitely not that pronounced
You have mentioned that the blurry spot is not noticable sometimes . Does that mean that the vision is normal at that moment?
Yeah, right now it is fine
It's more noticable when it's a little bit dark
Well in that case it should not be a matter of concern. It is important to know that the vision in the injured is normal( the same as it was before the injury).
Maybe the blunt injury to the eye has caused some amount of chemosis ( raised conjunctiva, which is the white part of the eye, due to accumalation of fluid).
Is that what was in the picture you sent me? And it will go away on its own?
Though it does not sound like an emergency, it would make sense to get the eye examined by an ophthalmologist if the blurry spot persists or if the raised spot persists beyond a week. Sometimes there can be internal injuries to the eye following a blunt injury which may not be visible to the eye externally. However a routine eye exam would confirm that the eye is free from any internal injury.
Yes, the picture sent is similar to chemosis. Actually it is that of a conjunctival cyst which can occur following trauma too. It is self limiting and disappears within a week or two.
Okay, I'll keep monitoring it over the next week or so. Thanks for your help!
