I poked my eye...

I poked my eye with scissors by mistake and it went all red and started to tear up a lot. I hard to keep my eye open, I feels like there is a scratch or something and when I blink it makes a sound

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

Hello I'm Dr Chip

It sounds as though you've got a corneal abrasion here

Nothing too serious since the cornea heals without scarring

But I suggest you have a doctor check it out because I usually prescribe an antibiotic ointment and an eye patch to keep it from getting infected

Please let me know if you need any more information
