About 14 days ago I was remediating a bad mold situation in

Resolved Question:

About 14 days ago I was remediating a bad mold situation in a basement. Unfortunately I never wore goggles. 10 days ago when finished, I mopped down the basement with a 2 part water-1 part bleach solution. My eyes started burning and watering about 3 days later. Do you think it's from the mold or the bleach? There is no real redness. Do you think my eyes are damaged irreparably, or will they get better? Is there a chance that I'll go blind?

Hello,

Customer:

HI

eyesight2020 :

Welcome to just answer.Iwill do my best to assist you.

Customer:

ok

eyesight2020 :

From what you posted,aslong as you did not get any of the solution in your eyes more than likely the vapors may have irritated your eyes andas a result your eyes became teary.

Customer:

okay, will this go away? and what should the eye doctor do? Will he prescribe something

eyesight2020 :

As long as you are not expiriencing any pain,decrease in vision or redness

eyesight2020 :

then you could use artificial tears like refresh tears upto 4 times a day for a week and this should help with your symptoms.

Customer:

I did not get any in my eyes, so I do not have to worry about going blind?

eyesight2020 :

However,if you have a decrease in vision with redness then you should follow up with your eye doctor fo more appropriate treatment.

eyesight2020 :

Yes from what you posted I do not think you will go blind.

Customer:

Well that helps my psyche.

eyesight2020 :

With the artificial tears it should resolve on its own

eyesight2020 :

If this has answered your question please rate it befire you leave the website.

Customer:

And what if mold spores got in my eyes, how would I know and can anything be done

eyesight2020 :

YOUR EYES WOULD BE RED WITH A DISCHARGE AND A DECREASE IN VISION

Customer:

Already after such a short time. About 7 days

eyesight2020 :

As I said ,if you have any significant redness,pain or decrease in vision you should follow up with your doctor

Customer:

Ok, thanks

eyesight2020 :

Otherwise, with the tears it should resolve on its own

eyesight2020 :

Glad to be of assistance for you
