My 13 year old son had a back injury in a football game over the weekend. He was forced into a barrier at speed and clattered the base of his spin. He was takent to hospital in an ambulance. They fully checked his back an was told everything was fine just brusing. However Saturday evening we noticed one side of his left eye was blood shot. Sunday morning the other side of the same eye was blood shoot. This morning he woke and one side of the right eye is blood shot. could these items be linked to the back injury and should we do anything about it?

If there is no pain, no reduced vision, no double vision, no flahses, nothing except the blood shot appearance of the white of the eye than its likely a traumatic subconjunctival hemorrhage which is like a harmless bruise on the surgace of the eye. They will go away without treatment.

IF he does have any of those symptoms first listed he needs to see an ophthalmologist soon.
