I had a blunt eye trauma about 4 weeks ago. I was told it was not that serious. I had a little bit of blood in the back of the eye but was told it will go away slowly and it is. I went on the steroid drops, the pressure drops and the Predfrin forte drops. I have normal vision now but maybe the odd light flicker and floater. I have a very small cataract but I hardly notice it.
I just started getting Iritis in the eye about 4 days ago and it kept getting worse until I told my doctor and he said to increase it over the weekend to 1 drop of Predfrin forte every hour for 2 days, then back to 4 times a day until my next appointment
So my questions are; are blunt trauma to the eye common?
What is the long term success rate of recovery? just generally speaking is it good ?
Is it common for low grade inflammation to come back to the eye?
Can inflammation take a while to go away ?
What can they do if inflammation does not go away?
All this is very worrying to me Doctor. Maybe it is more worrying to me then it should be. I cannot get enough information from the eye specialist, they just give me simple answers and rush me out the door and say it will be ok.
I just know I had a blunt trauma, I had no bleeding and I don't think it was any retina detachment or anything. But I remember my sight went blurly and could only see light for the first 24 hours after the injury.
I cannot sleep with worry. The past week I have only had maybe 4 hours sleep a night. I cannot function without my sight. I need to know it will be ok. I am a 31 year old unemployed guy, this is the last thing I need in my life.
I know some people on here will just go about their normal business but I cannot stop thinking about it. I cannot even eat properly, I have lost interest in everything. This situation is also bringing up past emotional trumas and I can't stop apologising to people for different things for no reason.
I hope this is just a small trauma and that things will get back to normal. I can see normal and was told by the doctor it was not as serious as he thought. Maybe I am just blowing this out of proportion. After all nothing penetrated the eye and I had no bleeding. But the Iritis now is the concern. I do get a bit of redness in the eyes but mostly it is clear and I can see fine. Just slightly blurry from the dilated pupil
and the from the drops I guess
The past weeks since the injury have been shocking and traumatic for me emotionally. I never had a problem with my eyes before.
Please I need someone that can really explain things to me..
Thank you Doctor
