Ocular Trauma

Eye Examination

   

Examination

Eye injuries can occur at any time.  Our office is equipped to handle most eye injuries.  The primary instrument we use is a biomicroscope.  The biomicroscope provides very high magnification and is designed to aid us in evaluating the extent of an eye injury.  Whether it is a laceration, foreign particle embedded or a burn, the biomicroscope is the primary tool to carefully examine the injury.

 

                   

Embedded Foreign BodyEmbedded Foreign Bodies

A common injury is a hot iron metallic foreign body embedded in the cornea.  Grinding or drilling in iron or other metals will release particles that are hot, and when they hit the eye, they embed themselves in the cornea.  If it is iron, as in this example, it will immediately begin to rust due to the salty consistency of our tears.  When the metal particle is removed, there is a remaining rust deposit that has infiltrated the surrounding cornea.  We have experience at removing these rust spots.  With proper medical treatment these injuries will resolve well. 

 

Most injuries to the cornea can be prevented with proper safety eyewear. 

 

Retinal Trauma

Contusions, otherwise referred to as a "black eye," can result in more than just the obvious bruises on the face.  The retina is the nerve tissue that senses light which lines the back of the eye.  There is a blood vessel layer under the retina.  This is very delicate and sensitive tissue.

 

Emergency Eye Care

If you have symptoms of  "Flashes of Light" in your vision, when there is no light to explain the flashes, this could mean that there is something happening in the back of the eye.  We encourage you to schedule an appointment to have a new onset of flashes and floaters evaluated. Our office staff is well trained to know how to expedite the treatment of these type of injuries and conditions.  Call immediately when an injury occurs.  We are here to help.
