Eye Pain (cont.)

Follow-up for Eye Pain

Follow-up care usually depends on the severity of the eye problem.

Signs and symptoms to look for are the same as the signs and symptoms of any of the eye injuries or diseases. Return to the ophthalmologist or the emergency room if increased eye pain, any loss of vision, increased eye discharge or redness, or swelling around the eye occurs.
