(3) Reassure the casualty that you will take care of him. Reduced vision,
even if no pain is present, may present serious psychological problems. Most
casualties will have little or no permanent damage to their sight.
6-28. MONITOR AND EVACUATE THE CASUALTY
a. If you are in a combat situation, return a casualty who had a temporary loss
of vision with no pain and no visible damage to the eye to duty. Evacuate a casualty
with pain, visible damage to the eye, or vision problems that do not improve to a
medical treatment facility. Evacuate the casualty in a supine position.
b. If you are not in a combat situation, evacuate the casualty to a medical
treatment facility for further evaluation by a medical officer.
The evacuation is usually by ground ambulance since the injury does not
justify aeromedical evacuation.
