Customer Question

I had my eyes tested a few days vision is 6/20 in my left eye., ever since then my left eyelids have been swollen and puffy and i can only open my eye 3/4 and it feels like something is stuck behind the inner corner of my eye and it hurts my eye to look down. Im not 100% sure but I think this was caused by the Noncontact tonometry as it made me jump a fair bit when the air went in my left eye. Should I be concerned or will it pass?

This is nothing to worry about. This will get better on its own and you will not have any long term problems.
Does this make sense to you?
Don't forget to mash the positive feedback button for me...the one labeled "excellent" is the most fun to push by far ;)
