Your Eyes

Do Not Ignore Blunt trauma Injuries To The Eye

by Dr. Tom Smith

Everyone realizes that the eye can be severely damaged when poked with a sharp instrument or object.  However, blunt trauma injuries may be just as destructive.  The long-term consequences of being hit in the eye with a tennis ball, for example, are not as widely recognized.

Such physical impact can distress the eye and result in a hyphema.  This is bleeding that occurs in the anterior chamber or area between the cornea and the iris.  Hyphemas are serious enough the first time around, but can be even more injurious when damage done in childhood resurfaces later in life.

Sometimes people do not recognize the severity of an injury taking place many years in the past.  It appeared that the original blunt force trauma healed.  In reality, these conditions can merely lie dormant for a period and then reemerge.  The key to preventing permanent damage is to secure immediate diagnosis and treatment from a vision professional when the eye has been harmed in any way.
