My son's left eye constantly blinks, can you help me?
My 3 yr. old son's left eye constantly blinks, this happened after he was punched by another 3 yr old toddler punched his left eye. We brought him to the pediatrician but the pediatrician forwarded us to a pedia-opthalmologist. the doctor didn't see any substance inside the eye, the eye is clean. he just gave us an antibiotic drops but my son's left eye still blinks after a week now. what could have been the cause of this and can you help me because my wife and I barely get enough sleep or work normally because we kept on thinking about our son's situaton.

Hi ya, I'm not a doc. and I glad you took him to the doc. To me it sounds like it could maybe be a nerve that got damaged OR the nerve could be suffering from a bit of shock "it I can put it that way"..It might take a bit of time for the nerve to settle down or it could be a permanent thing.  I suppose it's all about where the other child hit him on the eye...
But hey like I said I not a doc.  But to me it sounds like a nerve got damaged or the nerve is now pinching on the inside of the eye
Best to take your child to another doc to have me checked propper.
I believe you never play around when it comes to the eyes and the ears...
