Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Ellie: this is Dr.DonMD, an emergency physician. Sorry you enountered this injury, as they are quite painful at first. I am asuming from your description that you were seen either at an ER or an urgent care center, perhaps last evening. Corneal burns of the sort you describe are not uncommon.
Hope this helps you Ellie, and trust that, like most who have an injury of this sort, you will soon be better. In the meantime, keep a lookout for the above, and let me know if I can help again.
