    Hey guys! I'm back! The Doc said I got a severe iritant in my eye from the zoanthid and that its not palytoxin, bla bla bla! I couldn't understand a word he was saying. He gave me some antibiotic eye drops, inflamation pills and painkiller. He said It should go away in a few days and he said I should go and see a ophthalmologist tomorrow or Friday.

    only have to worry when you taste copper/metallic taste, then the palyotoxin has hit the blood stream

    glad all is ok, ER will prob rinse the eye and socket and give you activated carbon if they suspect poisoning

    Hey guys! My eye is so much better this morning. It's a bit red and puffy and you can't even see It. I still went to go see the ophthalmologist and he said It's just a small eye infection, nothing to worry about.
