My 7 year old son has wrestling practice 3 nights ago. At practice he got a knee in the eye. This morning he woke up with a large red spot in his eye. My first thought was that this was a bruise and would go away in a week or two.
Today he is complaining of a headache all day. Is this normal? Do I need to take him to a doctor?
A bright red spot on the white of the eye without pain, blurred vision, double vision would not be worrisome. It would likely be a small broken blood vessel. How ever if he has any of these symtpoms or a bad headache then I would recommend it be checked out by an Eye Physician.
