Other than some antibiotics, probably not necessary at this point, and some pain meds there is not much for a doc to do now anyway and I think in just a few hours he is going to be feeling much better. HOWEVER!!! if the symptoms get worse or there is any swelling of the surrounding skin the go to a doctor!
I understand your point and although you are likely correct I would not take that chance with my eyes At the very least he should call! There may appear to be no permanent damage but visualize life black!
