Hello doctor,

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If you feel any problems in vision and restricted mobility on one side, you should rush to the emergency room immediately.

  • Get an x-ray of the orbit done on the affected side.
  • Get your intraocular pressure and retina checked by an ophthalmologist.
  • For swelling, you can do a cold compress.
  • For redness, you can use lubricant eye drops, and Amnac (Nepafenac) drops, both thrice a day in the affected eye.
  • But remember, your other eye may also get involved sooner or later. It is known as sympathetic ophthalmitis. So, any difficulty in vision within a year should not be ignored.
