If one has pupil dilation in one eye after blunt trauma, how long can recovery take? It has been four weeks since the injury. Is there still a chance it will get better? The pupil does respond to light, but is always bigger than the other eye. It seems to be a little bit better, but is noticably bigger.
It sounds like you had a concusion? If so depending on the severity it can take quite a while to recover. It is variable depending on the depth of the damage to the head and the person. I hope you have seen a doctor if not you need to do so.
To be clear, the blunt trauma was to an eye. It was the back of a hand that hit his eye. He has had proper medical attention. The question is simply, now that it's been a month, can he still expect the pupil to get back to normal over the next few weeks? Can't find much info on the internet. We have our fingers crossed and friends/family are praying.
If there was no damage to the head/brain and only the eye. Perhaps you would like to write your question on the Eye Care site as they have an opthamologists there and can probably give you a better answer.
I hope the best for you,
