Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
thank you for your question
are blunt trauma to the eye common?Yes they are pretty common
What is the long term success rate of recovery?The long term success rate of recovery depends upon the severity of injury. In your case I think that your recovery should be complete.
Is it common for low grade inflammation to come back to the eye?Its not very common for that to happen but the inflammation that you are having should settle with the steroid eye drops and if that does not happen then you may require systemic steroid because iritis is something that needs to be treated and cannot be left untreated if it truly is iritis determined by your eye doctor after examining it.
Can inflammation take a while to go away ? Yes it can take a week or even more to go away depending on the severity of the inflammation and the treatment given.
What can they do if inflammation does not go away? Like I mentioned if topical steroids do not help then systemic steroids may be required.
But I remember my sight went blurly and could only see light for the first 24 hours after the injury. Blurry vision after trauma to the eye is very common and if this has settled then I would not worry.
