Blindness from a Chlamydia infection is actually very rare, normally the infection causes a unilateral conjunctivitis (aka pink eye, which btw most commenly is a viral infection). However in rare cases when the disease progresses and is left untreated you can develop a keratitis (inflammation/infection of the cornea). Keratitis can cause scarring of the cornea which causes obstruction of the light before entering the eye and thereby causing blurred vision. Unfortunately this is permanent, treatable with a cornea transplant though. Also possible is a uveitis which is an inflammation/infection of the uvea. Uveitis can damage your retina causing blindness. Nevertheless this remains very rare for a chlamydia infection and mostly only occurs after long-term disease progression. Maybe more importantly if you don't see a doctor after a stripper pees in your face and your eye turns red and starts hurting for several months this might just be a case of natural selection.
The more you know! I am a 6th year medical student btw. Sorry for the long post.
@Squinting Salamander, hes from Australia mate so down here when ya eye goes red you suck it up and say "she'll be right" or else people call ya a softc0ck. Turns out she wasnt right and he shoulda seen a doc since its free to go ta hospital here
@The Aussie, if that's the case he just has to stop going down under on strippers. I am very sorry for this pun...
@Squinting Salamander, anything goes down under
@Squinting Salamander, but will be left with a squint?
*Waits in a judgemental fashion for response.
@scottmandino, of course, where do you think I got my name from?
@Squinting Salamander, how many cases of eye chlamidia have to occur for them to start teaching it to led students?
@Tyrellious, rare in adults, in newborn baby's however quite common. When they are expelled from their womby prison into the birth canal (aka vagina) their eyes can come in contact with the Chlamydia bacteriae if the mom has been a bad girl.
@Tyrellious, one of the most uncomforable conversations I ever had, was when I had to explain to a patient that the soar throat was actually a gonorrhea infection. You could see the pus in the back of her throat...
@Squinting Salamander, I work as a medical assistant, and hoooooooly poop balls, the amount of idiocy that I see on a daily basis astounds me. Like, I couldn't make up half of the stuff I see
@Squinting Salamander, ahhh. Poor babies.
@Squinting Salamander, and *puss *Lenny Face*
