Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry that you have blurred vision after being sprayed in the eyes. Since it is 48-72 hours after being sprayed, you need to have your eyes examined. The spray may have caused some corneal damage and if so, you will need medication (steroids) to help relieve this. If you can't get into see an Optometrist, then I suggest going to an Urgent Care Center. If there is corneal damage, it needs treatment sooner rather than later.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
