Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Dear Kandy,You should definitely go for your eye check up as it is a chemical injury with the grease.The grease may have caused epithelial defect and stromal edema in your cornea due to which your vision has dropped.Since it was hot also you may have a corneal or conjunctival burn in your eye.I would suggest you to rush to your ophthalmologist who can start on antibiotic and steroid looking at the condition of your eye even if it doesn't hurt.If it is a grade 1 chemical injury you will retain the vision what you had before. ...TC bye..DR Ajay Shankar Kar, cornea consultant, Sankar foundation eye hospital, Vizag.
