Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, I am Dr. Longo. Is his vision in that eye blurry? Worst case scenario is that he acquired a corneal or conjunctival abrasion. I would recommend to be seen soon so as to get a prophylactic antibiotic to prevent infection and see if the wound is deep and needs patching/ bandage contact/debridement (cleaning). He will be prescribed an antibiotic and artificial tears as well. You can go to your local optometrist rather than an ER or ophthalmologist and be able to be seen right away. If he does nothing, it may heal on its own fine. But of course I don't know how deep it is or how clean of an abrasion it is. So it is better to be seen.
Ok that bodes well that the cornea is not severely swollen. You can lubricate with preservative free artificial tears every hour. As I said, depending on the depth of injury, I would get a prophylactic antibiotic prescribed to ensure no secondary infection develops.
Any other questions I can help you with? If not please accept the answers to end this discussion and allow me to be compensated. Thank you.
