Common Eye Injuries Evaluated at Our Baltimore, Rosedale, Pikesville, and Glen Burnie Ophthalmology Clinics
Eye injuries range in severity, type, and presentation. We have hands-on experience assisting people who are dealing with such injuries including:
- Ocular trauma: any sort of poke or blow to the face can lead to swelling, subconjunctival hemorrhage, traumatic iritis, or orbital blow out fractures
- Retinal detachment or tear: a medical emergency in which the retinal tissue pulls away from the back of the eye
- Corneal abrasion: scrapes or cuts on the corneas can be extremely painful and irritating
- Foreign body impalement: small pieces of debris can become lodged in the eye
- Chemical burn: caustic substances can splash or leak into the eyes, leading to burns and scarring
- Infection: bacterial or viral infections can be very contagious and lead to itchiness, eye discharge, and blurry vision, among other things
