Hi doctor,

I met with a firework injury. A small cracker burst a little away and hit my eye. A few debris got into my eyes with a little force. There is no redness, but my vision is a little blurred. I am doing cold compress and have bought Eye Spa eye drops. My concern is the blurred vision. Please help

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From what you have described, you have decreased vision after getting hit with firecracker debris.

  • One possibility is that you may have some debris in your eyes still and in that case, you will most probably have irritation.
  • The trauma may also have caused a reaction in the eye (uveitis), which can cause pain on looking at the light and blurred vision.
  • For now, I suggest an antibiotic eye drop like Moxifloxacin once in every three hours. Meet your ophthalmologist for physical examination and take the treatment with consent.
