Ocular Trauma

Let’s face it, even in the best of circumstances accidents can happen. Sometimes, these accidents will involve the eye or the surrounding area. Incidents can include being hit in the head with a baseball or basketball; falling and hitting your head; being poked in the eye by a finger or a tree branch; having something fly into the eye. The list can go on and on. 

When any of the preceding occurs, being evaluated by an eye care professional will ensure that all structures of the eye are healthy. It is especially important to be seen if there are ocular symptoms or visual disturbances. This will include ocular pain in or around the eye, short-term loss of vision, decreased vision, red eye(s), the appearance of floaters, or the presence of flashing lights. It is best to be seen by an eye doctor sooner, rather than later.
