Flashes and floater in eye along with Severe discomfort above the eye
I got hit by a cricket ball into my eye around 9 month ago, After this freak incident i started seeing flashes and floaters in my eye, In the first month of my injury i felt pain when i tried to rotate my eye specially above the eye under the brow( i do not have the double vision problem).Since that i have been to 7 different doctors 3 of them were retina specialist, one was neuro ophthalmologist and other three were general ophthalmologist.
1- After 9 month of injury i still see flashes and floaters, Flashes has been reduced significantly like before i used to see very bright flashes 5 to 7 in one hour but now i see less bright flashes and just one flashes in one hour, and floaters only bother me in sunlight, I just want to know do i still need to be worried about these flashes and floaters ?
2- The thing which depressed me a lot is Discomfort and pain above the eye under the brow it become severe when i use computer or drive a car. All the doctors whom i visited they just said there is nothing wrong with your eye ball and give it a time.
3- Recently i visited a general Opthomologist he prescribed me nevanac eye drops, is it good to take this inti inflammatory eye drops after after month of injury ??
I am so worried about my career because i just have one eye for good vision my other eye was damaged when i was a kid, i am just 26 year old and i have recently finished my bachelor degree and i am not even apply for the job because my job involve using the computer 8 to 12 hours everyday which is extremely hard for me. i have been to this forum before and got some useful recommendation from dr john and i would really appreciate if he reply me to these questions thanks

1. You have now injured both eyes one severely and the other causing symptoms.  You should have been wearing sports specific eye protection. You need to commit yourself to protecting your eye from another injury. that means avoiding contact sports, wearing glasses all the time to protect the eye, avoiding things like power tools, firecrackers, lawn mowers, etc. Never stop thinking eye safety.
2. After seeing all the ophthalmologists you have it's not likely that you have anything seriously wrong with the injured eye.
3. I would suggest you have a comprehensive ophthalmologist you feel comfortable with and a retina ophthalmologist you feel comfortable with and see each one yearly but off set the exams by 6 months so that one of them looks at your eye twice/year.
4. If any new or dramatic symptoms occur you can go in for an extra exam.
5. I have had people have flashes after trauma for many years without problems. One was a physician's wife that got hit in eye with tennis ball.
6. When the eye is injured the facial nerve is often injured and that can cause facial pain for a long time. If it is really disconcerting you might go to a pain clinic to see if they could offer you anything.
