Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr. DADAPEER K, an Ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

It seems from the history that you had a injury to the caruncle of the eye by a lawn chip. Since you are not having symptoms indicating serious eye injury like swelling, watering, redness... no need to worry.
Since it has made a small cut causing pain, you need to use antibiotic eye drops like ofloxacin. If pain is severe you can use analgesic pain killer tablets. You will be fine by 1-2 days.

If you are having symptoms of visual impairment like blurring of vision, diminution of vision you need to consult your eye doctor for examination to rule out injury to cornea and other vital structures of the eye.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards

Hai, Im from Bangalore, India. Im having a 3 year old daughter. She didnt have birth cry & had lack of oxygen supply to her brain at birth. We are doing pysiotherapy for the past 3 years. She has cortical visual impairment & other multiple disabilities resulting in delayed development in all aspects.
Kindly advise me about the right treatment for her multiple disabilities & cortical visual impairment. CVI is the main hindrance of her other developments.
Thank you. Waiting for your guidance in anticipation.

My sister was diagnosed with a disease that causes early morning blindness, and impaired vision later in the day. Salt was the problem and she had to use drops in the morning to help neutralize it?? She was supposed to apply for the state to do surgery on her eyes to permanently fix this, but our state is currently not taking care of the poor, so she is waiting for total blindness. Now my mother is thinking of paying for the surgery, but we don t know what the name of the disease is, so that we could check the price.

The other day i fainted (and got a nose bleed) and then (while unconscious) fell onto tile. When i came to i was delirious with impaired vision for a while. I was taken to the hospital and they said i was fine: we wanted to be sure so i got a cat scan of my head. They didn t find anything abnormal. For the past several months i have been getting nose bleeds and sometimes (especially during times of increased heart rate ) terrible pains in my feet . Im 6 2 and my med school brother believes these are all symptoms of weak circulation but my blood pressure was fine. Since the incident i ve been consistently a little light headed.
