I was assaulted 4 weeks ago and took a hard punch to the eye itself. I got checked out at the hospital straight after the incident, and they sent me home saying I would be ok. My vision wasn't 100% after this- double vision when staring down or to the side- basically at the extremes of eye movement. I went back to hospital to for a further check, and they checked out the eye, said the damage was superficial, but sent me for a CT scan. Not had the result yet but going back in next week for a check up- its now 4 weeks since the blow and my vision seems less blurry, the double vision is still there. My concern is that I have suffered a blow-out fracture (my upper lip and gums were very numb but this is reducing now), however the hospital does not seem too concerned (being as they have not called me back in quickly after the CT scan). Could my double vision be a result of eye muscle swelling, and will this reduce in time? I carried a heavy box the other day and felt a throbbing around my eye after- maybe that's in my head- could that really cause that effect?
