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!
Success is getting what you want but happyness is liking what you get.
