Question: Hi doctor. I was taking photos of my right eye after I accidentally poked myself in my right eye while sleeping. I have long nails. I forgot the flash on and the camera flashed about an inch away from my eye. My left eye had a guard on it but it may have got some flash. I had a corneal transplant a couple of weeks ago in my left eye. 1. Does my right eye look ok? (Picture attached) 2. Will the flash affect my right eye or my left grafted eye? Thanks.

Brief Answer:
Its ok.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for choosing HCM.

1)Yes your eye looks ok in picture attached by you.
2)It won't effect any of your eye.A single exposure never hurts any organ however if this would be repeated again and again then it would cause problem.

As of now just relax and calm down.
You are fine.
Be careful from next time.
