As well as the potential for an eye injury to be caused by the eye area being hit and injured by an object, injuries to the eye can include burns, cuts, scratches and irritation.
Small objects travelling at a high speed are the most likely to cause serious eye injuries. Examples of these objects include glass or other objects propelled at the eye during a motoring accident.
If you are suffering from an eye injury, your symptoms will vary, depending on how the injury occurred. Below are some of the most common eye injury symptoms.
Iritis: This is an inflammation of the iris and it occurs following an eye injury such as a blow to the eye. Symptoms can include decreased vision, an aching sensation, light sensitivity and increased tearing, and the condition usually requires medical treatment.
Scratches: If you have a scratch on the cornea (the outer surface of the eye), the symptoms may be similar to having a foreign object stuck in your eye. They could include a sensation that something is stuck in the eye, increased tearing, sensitivity to light and pain.
Chemical eye injuries: If your eye has been injured as a result of chemical exposure, your eye may turn red and the eyelids could become swollen. You are also likely to feel pain or a burning sensation.
Bleeding: If you have noticed a red area on the eye, it may seem worrying. However, this is usually due to a burst blood vessel on the eye’s surface and should heal slowly without any symptoms.
Fracture: an orbital fracture will cause symptoms such as swelling, double vision, pain (particularly with movement of the eyes) and bruising.
