The eye is a very sensitive area of the body, and when injuries to the eye occur, medical attention should be sought right away. There are many eye conditions or injuries that could occur, including:
A Black Eye- A black eye occurs when fluid collects in tissues after an injury occurs near the eye. Bruising and discoloration can occur due to broken blood vessels beneath the skin.
Blepharitis- Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelids due to eye irritation, watery eyes, and sensitivity to light.
Blurry Vision- Blurry vision can occur due to fatigue, eye diseases, eyestrain, and more.
Burning Eyes- Burning and stinging eyes can occur due to environmental influences or more serious eye problems.
Chalazion- A chalazion is a painless bump or nodule that forms in the upper or lower eyelid.
Corneal Abrasion- A corneal abrasion, also known as a scratched eye, is a common eye injury that can cause significant discomfort.
Corneal Ulcer- A corneal ulcer occurs due to a localized infection of the cornea, and is associated with pain, redness, eye discharge, and reduced vision.
Double Vision- Double vision may be temporary and can occur due to dry eyes, and corneal irregularities. It can also be associated with more serious conditions such as stroke.
Eye Injury- Injury to the eye can cause pain and damage to the eye, and should be treated by a medical professional as soon as possible.
Eye Infections- Eye infections can occur due to harmful microorganisms in the eye.
