I suffered a periorbital hematoma and a subconjunctival hemorrhage over 2 months ago in a basketball game. The scleral bleeding has healed, but the bruising and part of the swelling has yet to go away. I still feel pain around my eye (throbbing sensation every now and then). Can anyone help?
Be sure you've seen an ophthalmologist to be sure there is no intraocular damage such as a retinal detachment. The nerves are mashed against bone in that type of injury and pay of 3-6 months is not rare.
Swelling or bruising may take a similiar amount of time.
This is the fourth month and my symptoms persist. The opthalmologist had no clue as to what could could be causing the pain, swelling, and discoloration to still be here. My vision is still good and my orbital structures are still intact. Any suggestions as to what I should do now?
