Eye Pain (cont.)

Next Steps

Follow-up

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 your ophthalmologist or the emergency room if you have increased eye pain, any loss of vision, increased eye discharge or redness, or swelling around the eye.
