Snorts crystal meth, swollen red eye, sore above eye and nose. Treatment?

My friend snorted crystal meth for the first time almost two weeks again and had a bad reaction to it. His eye swelled shut and had these sores above his eye and nose . He can now open the eye bit we are still very concerned for him since his eye is still very red and he cannot see very well out if it. He refuses to go to the doctor. What should we do?

I am sorry but there is no option of avoiding a visit to the doctor. Meth damages the blood vessels and if those of his eye are damaged, there is a risk of losing his vision permanently. Secondly, sores are liable to get infected and spread of infection to the eye will worsen the prognosis. Take your friend to a doctor immediately.

Bets wishes.
