Elbowed in the eye
I was accidentally elbowed in the eye about one and half weeks ago. There was no swelling , redness of the eye or pain, just a soreness.

Went to see an optometrist after 4 days as the front of the eye was tender when blinking. Also, the upper cheek was slightly numb.

Optometrist said:  Normal vision
                            Retina normal
                            Intra ocular pressures normal
                            Slit lamp normal
                            Eye movements normal

Optometrist said that my eye was probably just bruised and would heal on its own.



The eye is very slowly improving but still feels different to the other eye. Has the optometrist missed something?

Do I have a fracture, corneal oedema or anterior uveitis?

What is bruising of the eye? Shouldnt I be given something for it.? If not, will I develop other problems in the future because it was left untreated..


Please help

Thanks, Elena

Your eyes deserve the best. The best is an Eye MD ophthalmologist. Find one near you at www.aao.org and get in to see if something was missed by the optom.
