My DIL was camping earlier this week and set off to the wooded area around their campsite in search of wood for the campfire. She bent over to pick up a piece of wood and when she came up, a stick came in contact with her eye and scratched she suffered a painful scratch.
She went to the emergency room and they treated her with eye drops and told her to wear a patch over the eye until she could see an opthamologist. Her appointment was yesterday. They gave her more eye drops to put in her eye every 2 hours and put novacaine in her eye so she could open her lid. They found she scratched her cornea and that there was fluid building up in her eye. The doctor said that she may lose some of her vision in the injured eye. She returns next week for a follow up and may have to have the fluid drained from her eye. (yuck!)
Hopefully, she will regain her eyesight. We are keeping our fingers crossed.
