Subject: RE: Anyone ever have welder's flash (corneal flash burns)? Should I not run?
You care about your eyes? See an eye doctor ASAP.
I know everything on this subject. See an eye doctor ASAP. If it's from welding, you'll get a cycloplegic drop and an antibiotic ointment. If it's a foreign body, they'll remove the FB, and give you some antibiotic topicals.
Ultraviolet keratopathy [welder's flash] would usually be bilateral [both eyes]. Were you welding with one eye open?
The photophobia [light sensitivity] means you may have a mild anterior chamber reaction [inflammation] inside your eye. Could also be from a foreign body. See an eye doctor ASAP and find out.
No, I'm leaning toward the "see an eye doctor ASAP" side. It never ceases to amaze me how losing vision is always listed as the public's number one fear, yet people take such poor care of their eyes.
Listen son, go get it checked out, and report back. I'll be interested to see if you take my advice.
