I was hit in the left eye by a tennis ball earlier today and I want straight to the eye emergency department. My symptoms are that of having a detached retina, but because of the blood inside I have been put on two different eye drops and I am to go back on Monday once the blood clears up a bit.
My question is, the flashing lights and the general sensitivity of the injured eye is causing me to have quite the headache. When I cover the eye with a piece of cloth, the pain goes away. Am I ok to keep it covered until I go back for further treatment, removing it to apply my eye drops?
