:whine: Plz help .. is this gonna go away. Im so mad at myself. I was using the weedeater without my glasses on. I usually have my shades on when Im wacking the weeds but this time I left them in the truck and did not get them, Big mistake. I got drilled with a piece of rock or a chunk of weed right in the eyeball. Instantly I saw blurry. I went and washed my face and eyes in water but still nothing. I have / had 20/20 vision and now I have 20 in my left eye and crap on the right. Just right now on my way home the cars headlights and tail lights had an orro / a ring around the lights like the type you get when you swim in a pool with alot of chlorine, but when I closed my hurt eye and looked with my good eye I saw perfectly without the orro or ring around the lights.

Is this temperary? will it go away.

lol, your asking a bunch of gear heads a medical problem...

But I would say if it didn't impact with too much force, it MIGHT not be too serious. If its not better by morning, go see a opthamologist...thats a real eye doctor..an MD...not like the glasses guys who are optometrists.

Go to the doctors.You might need an antibiotic in there.You dont want infection in an eye.

I had the exact same thing happen to me. Man that freaked me out. A rock flew up and hit me right on the eye ball. I freaked and threw the weed wacker and stumbled to the house and sat down on the porch. I was afraid to look cause I thought for sure I lost the eye. I ended up going to the ER, and he put these special drops in my eye, and used a special light to look at my eye. The rock scratched the surface pretty good. It was blurry for a day or so and really watery. After it cleared up, I couldn't see distances very well for about two weeks. It eventually went back to normal. I won't pick up a weed wacker now without my full face shield on.

I have had several eye surgeries over the years... last one was to remove a chunk of rock that went thru my contact lense and lodged in the lense of my eye. Hurt like the dickens too

When I was at the ER for my eye poking incident, he gave me some cream that really helped with the burning. It had some kind of deadening properties too which made it feel so much better.

There's nothing like almost losing your eye to get you to use eye protection religiously.

Don't poke your eye....

Go to the doctor. As far as parts of my body that I really don't want permanently injured, my eyes are way up on the list.

At least you didnt get poked in your brown eye, you would have to go see a different kind of doctor.

Mike, that tower is quite a piece of work. Nice job. My oldest brother built a large antenna for his short wave when we were kids. It worked pretty good, but it was nothing like your set up.

I built a shop for a guy that was into ham radio. He had a large tower like you have. His wasn't one that could be lowered though, so he had to climb his.

This reminds me when i was putting weed killer in one of those tanks you pump up and spray with, i pumped it up all of the sudden some how half the contents came flying out right into my face, eyes, mouth everywhere...I couldnt open my eyes, I could barely breath...I had to blindly walk to a sink where i could flush my face...my eyes were blood shot afterwards but I was ok.......thankfully.

IMO go to the eye doc. I just got done dealing with a pc. of metal that was stuck in my eye, I went to the doc. the next day and they had to numb the eye and use a drill to get the metal out!

Doc. told me to sit still while he drilled the metal out, kind of hard to sit still when you're starring at a drill bit headed right for your eye!:screwup:

Then they had me wear a bandage contact for a few days, then the doc. had to scrap the rust "ring" from my eye, followed by a prescription eyedrops.

Everything seems to be fine now, I was wearing safety glasses and this still happened, now I wear safety goggles...

During my machinist career, I got this tiny little sliver of metal stuck in my eye. I remember the doc putting some drops in it, then wiping my eye ball with something (can't remember what) to get it out.

Go to the Doc!! I had a scratched cornea before. It can be pretty serious if you don't get it treated.
