Question

 

 

Hello doc,

My kid who is 6 months old poked himself accidentally in the eye with a pen causing an injury in the eye. It has got a mark on the white part of the eye.

Kindly find the attached pics and advice if this is a serious concern. So far we haven't consulted a doctor hoping it will be self cured eventually.

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

From those pics, it seems the trauma was to the sclera ( white part) only with some subconjunctival hemorrhage.

I advise you to do two things , first use antibiotics eye drops such as phenicol or tobramycin eye drops, 2-3 times a day just to prevent any infection that can occur from this injury.

The Second thing to visit an eye doctor immediately to be sure the cornea is no involved and also to be sure the injury is not that deep to cause any damage.

Be safe and always keep you child away from sharp objects.
