Retina
If you bruised your retina, would that increase the chance of getting retinal detachment. I have couple small bruises on mine.

The retina is technically part of the brain.  A bruise is the retinal usually result in death of the cells.  This area is weak and can cause a problem in the future such as a retinal detachment.  Chance is very small.
