Eye Trauma

Eye Trauma

There are many different forms of trauma, varying in severity from minor injury to medical emergencies.

What Causes Eye Trauma?

Eye trauma can be a blunt trauma or a penetrating eye injury.

Blunt Trauma : When the eye is hit with blunt force, it suddenly compresses and retracts. This can cause blood to collect underneath the affected area, which leads to many of the common symptoms of eye trauma

Penetrating Eye injuries result usually by injury from a sharp object resulting in a puncture wound in the eyeball. There is a direct injury to the eye as well as this can lead to collapse of the eye ball and further damage.

Symptoms of Eye Trauma

Symptoms of eye trauma may include:

  • Bruising (black eyes)
  • Cuts to the eyelid
  • Eye redness
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding between the cornea and iris, known as hyphema
  • Retinal detachment
  • Blurred or cloudy vision
  • Double vision

Eye Trauma Treatment in Mumbai

In minor cases of trauma, such as a black eye from a sports injury, applying cold to the affected area can help bring swelling down, and allow the affected area to heal faster. However, even in cases where trauma seems minor, every eye injury should be given medical attention.

The best way to avoid eye trauma is to prevent it by using protective eyewear while doing things that may put them at risk. Activities include home repair, yard work, cleaning, cooking, and playing sports. In most cases of injury, people report not properly protecting their eyes – which shows that proper precautions may prevent an eye injury.
