Ok. Thank you for that extra information.
This actually happens more often than you would think it does. In my practice I come across this about once a year :(
The good news? You did the right thing by flushing with a lot of water and genteel ointment.
The other good news? When the swelling goes down, everything will be OK. There should be no long term damage to your eyes or vision. It will, however, be swollen for a day or so more....
I would continue to keep your eye gooped up with the genteel ointment and put ice
on the swelling.
You can tell your friends and co-workers that the other guy looks a lot worse ;)
Does this make sense to you?
