Solicitors in Heywood


You may wish to make an injury compensation claim using the solicitors in Heywood at Accident Advice Helpline if you are involved in an accident that was not your own fault and suffered an eye injury as a result.

You could have any type of eye injury, ranging from minor such as an irritation, to quite severe such as going blind. Even if you have a minor problem you should get it looked at straight away, otherwise it might end up to be quite serious.

How eye injuries happen

There are lots of different ways in which eye injuries can occur. Here are some of the more common ones:

  • Any blow to the eye, perhaps being hit with a ball or some other projectile. If it hits your eye with force, it can cause bleeding in the eye or the retina to become detached, which can have very serious consequences for your eyesight.
  • If a foreign body gets in your eye it can cause you much discomfort, and depending on what it is this can become painful and distressing.
  • If you get cuts to your eyelids or eyeballs, perhaps from flying glass in a car accident, you will immediately be aware that you have a problem, and hopefully the damage will not be too serious.
  • Exposure to gasses or chemicals can cause strong irritations initially, and more dire consequences the longer it is happening for.
  • Ultraviolet light, exposure to the sun or sun lamps can cause flash burn to the cornea.

You may want to use solicitors in Heywood to help with your personal injury claim, if any of these or any other accident that was not your fault has happened to you.

The symptoms

As people are different, this means that every injury can also be different, and even if you have the same injury the effects could be nothing alike. Here are some examples of the symptoms that people may experience:

  • Sensitivity to light;
  • Wet or dry eyes, caused by an increase or decrease in the tears produced;
  • Blurred or distorted vision;
  • Eye muscles going into spasms, causing squints;
  • Difficulty keeping the affected eyes open;
  • The feeling you have something in your eye;
  • Redness of the eye; and
  • Pain in the eye.

The treatments

If your eye injury is very painful you should seek medical attention immediately, as you should not try and attempt to treat your eye yourself. You can do more harm than good by messing with this delicate organ, so you should leave it to the specialists to deal with.
