I recived injetctions of Kenalog and about a half and hour later I lost complete vison in my right.
Unfortunately in rare instances it can cause blindness.
Ophthalmic side effects of Kenalog: Exophthalmos, glaucoma, increased intraocular pressure, posterior subcapsular cataracts, rare instances of blindness associated with periocular injections.
I too had a injection of Kenalog 10 in my face. After the first 3 weeks I noticed a dime size dent on my cheek. Called the doctor who did the injection, came back to the office. But before that, I researched the internet and found a link where 4 people had a kenalog injection got saline injected in the same spot the kenalog was and could possibly help flush out or decrease the efrects of kenalog working its full term of 6 weeks. I showed the doctor this link on this study and he agreed maybe saline which acts like water can help. This study showed 4 people went every week for 8 weeks & had them same amount of saline injected in the area. All 4 people had great results. Them links is called treatment for contanious atrophy from steroid injection. Look into onlinelibary.wiley.com Hope this helps!!! And Im so sorry.
