If you are experiencing eye pain, redness, swelling or decreased vision, it is a good idea to contact an ophthalmologist as soon as possible. These symptoms could indicate a local ocular problem that requires prompt and correct treatment to prevent possible loss of sight. If you sustain a blow to the eye and develop swollen shut eyelids, do not press on the eye, as this may do further internal damage. If double vision is present, this may indicate a fracture of one of the orbital bones.
For chemical burns, rinse the eyes for at least 15 minutes and seek professional help as soon as you can after rinsing. Symptoms of a corneal abrasion or conjunctival foreign body, may be pain, tearing, and foreign body sensation. If you are experiencing pain, redness, swelling, decreased vision or have had trauma or injury to the eyes, contact an ophthalmologist, physician or an emergency room as soon as possible.
To reduce the risk of trauma or injury to the eye, be sure to wear protective goggles or face masks whenever appropriate, such when playing sports, working in the shop, or mixing/using caustic chemicals. A minute of preparation can be worth a lifetime of good vision.
