Thank you for taking the time to look at my post.
Four days ago my 18-month-old daughter accidentally stuck her finger up into my left eye. Literally under the eyelid.. It all happened in an instant and the pain was excruciating; runner-up if not the worst I've ever felt.
I visited the ER as soon as my wife got home because I couldn't drive myself sooner, The doctor put some pain drops and something I'm going to call highlighter-ish drops in my eye, flipped my upper eyelid up, looked at it under a black light and said "Wow, she got you good".
Then he tells me she got my eyelid really good and she scratched my eye a bit too. He prescribed me some Vicoprofen And some antibiotic ointment for my eyeball.
I've been putting slight pressure against my eye with a clean rag with an ice cube in it ever since I got home to help with the pain; now that I can finally open my eye for short periods at a time my vision is extremely blurry.
I'm still keeping it closed the majority of the time as it is less painful closed. Should I try keeping it open for longer periods even though it hurts for eye-health reasons?

The pharmacist told me that the ointment would make my eye blurry for about 15 minutes but I'm experiencing blurry vision out of that eye all day.
Basically what I'm asking is did I hurt my vision more by putting pressure and ice?
Will my vision ever return? Should i hold my eye open even though it hurts? I've never had vision problems in my life!
Thanks in advance for any help or advice you may have to offer!
