I was punched in the eye on accident. The next day my vision went back to normal despite the fact my eyelids are swollen. I went to the eye doctor today, and he checked my eye and said everything seems okay, a little bruised but my retina looks okay, he recommended I go to a retinal specialist tomorrow. Before he left he started to describe the symptoms of retinal detachment and to make sure I'm aware what to look for. This creeped me out. Its been 24 since the accident now and my vision is normal just my eyelids are swollen still. My question is would I know by now if I had a problem with my retina detaching? Generally after a trauma incident how long does it take? Thanks.
