He believes something must have gotten in his eye while he was clearing brush in his backyard yesterday. No pain was noted during that time, but he awoke early this morning, and the pain started within an hour. He wears contact lenses and has removed them without relief. He has no history of eye problems other than farsightedness, for which he has worn monovision contact lenses for 10 or more years. He has no known medical problems and considers himself “very healthy.” He says the pain was horrible at first (10/10) and now is slightly less (8/10) but still bad. He said although he removed his contacts and his vision is generally similar in both eyes, his vision in his right eye is very blurry.  Physical ExaminationVital signs: T 98.4, BP 150/95, HR 88, RR 18, HT 70, WT 215 lbs.General: Patient holds right eye constantly during history and appears in distress. Vision: Visual acuity, uncorrected: OS 20/60; OD less than 20/200.
