  • Never ever take an eye injury lightly. If it looks like infection and she's complaining it hurts, get her in ASAP.

  • As twinsplus2more said you should never take an eye injury lightly. Did they do any type of testing in the ER to see if she has a corneal scratch?

  • I would def go get it checked infection is not good in any place and even worse in the eye area. So if it is not getting better and is still bothing her then I would def take her in and get it checked. Even if all is okay. Better to be safe then sorry you would feel horrible if something happens cause you waited to long.
