major eye injuries.......?


hi there,

my brother got attacked a few nights ago and the guys that did it, punched him in the eye with somethin as it caused his pupil to burst/blown and his retina to tear. he is going to have surgery to correct the tear in the retina but the docs have said they cant do anything about the burst pupil.

my brother is quite active, he loves swimmin and he was a member of the athletics club. So i wanted to know what activities can he or cant he do? does anyone know, will he be able to drive. At the moment he cant see anything out of his eye. its just his right eye, his left eye is fine.

thanks

A member of my family is blind in one eye (so is Gordon Brown Prime Minister). He will be able to drive and do anything he did before. The surgeons will tell him when he will be safe to drive. Depends on recovery. Hope he is going to claim from the Criminal Injuries Board for compensation.  (+ info)

he should be fine to drive a car if he loses the site in his eye! but will require his doctors /or ophthalmologist to say so he would also be required to inform his insurance company and the dvla if living in the u/k as for your other questions they should be directed to the doctors or surgeons who im sure will answer your questions if you are with your brother at the time of asking  (+ info)

Can anyone suggest activities for someone on bed rest for eye injury?


My fiance is on total bed rest for an eye injury. He is not allowed to watch television, read, use a computer, or use his eyes in almost any way. They basically want him to lie there with his eyes closed and his head elevated at least until Monday. He can only get up to go the bathroom. He is pretty drugged up and sleeps a lot, but there are periods that he is awake and bored.

What activities can he do? I thought listening to a podcast or something like that. Any more suggestions?

Thanks!
----------

Tell him a story <3
Or talk with him alot.
or how about board games.

head/eye injuries - urgent?


hi there,

my brother got attacked a few nights ago and the guys that did it, punched him in the eye with somethin as it caused his pupil to burst/blown and his retina to tear. he is going to have surgery to correct the tear in the retina but the docs have said they cant do anything about the burst pupil.

he had laser surgery on wednesday this week to repair the retina.
he has been suferring from head aches since, but the hospital said that the two arnt related.

im just wondering, if he should have any scans etc,, because the hospital didnt do any scans for him.
----------

Mr. Vineet you are very very very wrong. The beauty of the eye is its transparancy and closeness to the skin. When the doctor used a little torch microscope thing on your brothers eye, he was able to see it all with his naked eye, far better than a scan. (P.s. CT scans on eye lens cause cataracts.) Anyways, burst pupil is kinda vague. The pupil is a hole. Burst aqueous humour or vitreous humour sounds more plausible. They are jelly surrounded by a thin skin. it's too delicate for anything but the human body to fix. The headaches are probably concussion.  (+ info)

How long for a black eye to form + other eye injuries?


I hit myself in the face earlier today on accident with a wii remote control; it really was a doofus move. Anyway, this happened about ten hours ago. I hit myself just under the eye on that bone right there, a little bit towards the -outer- side of my eye. Initially, there was a good amount of swelling just at the area of impact. Now, the swelling is still present, but it is reduced. A bruise is starting to form at the spot of impact, and I think it's starting to stretch up to the -inside- corner of my eye.

What I want to know is how long black eyes take to form, and if it sounds like I'm getting one, or if this will be nothing more then bruising already present.

Thanks everyone. (:

what are the possible injuries to a bump on the head?


me n my brother were playing around today when he got hit in the head by a plastic cup resolting to a REALLY big bump. its located on on the top right side of the right eye. i read on the internet that its called a 'goose egg'. plz respond saying what we should do.
----------

Most likely he'll be OK

Just be sure if he

Throws up (vomit)
Is very tired
Has one pupil different than the other in size or they don't react to light

These are symptoms of a concussion (brain bruise) and you would need to see a doctor

If he has none of these then just some ice and a good night sleep, he'll have it for a couple of days  (+ info)
