What Is Eye Trauma?

Eye trauma is any type of eye injury or damage to the eye, eyelid, and surrounding structures. Common types of eye trauma include blunt force trauma, such as being poked in the eye with a finger or object, eye burns due to chemical exposure, sharp force injuries like lacerations from a knife or shard of glass, and even eye strain from overuse of eye muscles. Even injuries that seem small can have a significant and lasting impact on eye function and health, so we recommend seeking out an expert in order to keep your vision healthy.

Should I Have Eye Trauma Treatment?

The decision to undergo eye trauma treatment is a personal one, and should be made only after careful consideration. If you are experiencing any eye trauma symptoms, the first step is to visit a specialist like Dr. Williams to have your situation evaluated. Based on her assessment, she can then provide you with the necessary information to make an informed decision about eye trauma treatment in Chicago and match you with treatment options to see optimal results.

After the Surgery: Recovery

Once your eye trauma treatment is complete, the process of healing begins. Recovery can vary significantly, and it depends on your individual procedure and health. For mild surgeries, patients may only require a few days of downtime to recover. For more involved reconstruction or orbital repair, patients may need up to two weeks of time off from work and daily routines. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions based on your individual plan, including how to care for the treatment site at home. Our goal is to ensure you have all the information you need for a speedy and comfortable recovery.

After the Surgery: Results

The eye trauma treatments we offer have a high success rate and are designed to provide both cosmetic and functional results. Depending on your individual procedure, you can expect to see improved eye function, relief from eye trauma symptoms such as pain or irritation, and minimal visible scarring. Patients often find that they see some results almost immediately, but it is important to remember that you will see your final results only after you have fully recovered. So it is important to stick to your recovery instructions until Dr. Williams gives you full approval to return to your daily routine.
