Blurry vision on right eye after being hit by toy dart gun

Posted , 2 users are following.

My brother and I were playing games with our toy dart guns (not Nerfs, just cheap dart guns) when unexpectedly (the Stormtrooper that he is), he shot a clean dart to my right eye at about a meter or so distance. I ended up yelping in pain as my right eye flooded with tears. A few hours later, the pain had gone away, but sometimes it would come back. I noticed that my right eyesight has decreased, and whenever I close my left eye and only let my right eye open, I am barely able to make out words, and light is scattered almost everywhere. I haven't visited the eye doctor yet. is it necessary? Will I be okay?

    NO, it will not be ok. Get to the doctor as soon as possible before you loose your sight in that eye completely! Do your parents know about this? Your eyes are precious. Please take care of them. smile Dena
