Dr. Dan where are you? I was under the impression you were already logged in and ready to answer my question. I'm fearful that I may have caused my friend to be blind.

Good evening,

Let me help you since Dr. Dan doesn't seem to be there.

It is definitely necessary that your friend has his vision checked! The pressure from the shot could have damaged the retina or the cornea or caused a bleeding in the glass body.

Some conditions heal spontaneously, but some need therapy. Please bring your friend to an eye doctor.
