    :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.

    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.

    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.
