Car crash, rd question

Hello, it's been about 3 years now from successful RD surgery, still have silicone oil in my eye. Today I was in car accident, I didn't hit my head in the windshield or on the steering wheel, I just have scratch under my chin, because my head went above the steering wheel and stopped before the windshield, without hitting anything, just scratch under a chin.... I don't feel any pain in my head, I'm just scared a bit because of my RD, is it high risk for RD to reoccur because of this, I can't see my surgeon any time soon, what to do?

You are probably ok.  See the doctor as soon as you can to make sure, especially if you have visual symptoms.
