Symptoms of an Eye Injury
An eye injury may occur at the same time as a facial injury. Symptoms that mean an eye injury may be more serious and require medical attention include:
- An eye that does not move normally in all directions.
- Double or blurred vision that is not cleared by blinking.
- Pain in the eyeball itself or in or around the eye when a person moves the eye or blinks.
- Sudden loss of vision.
- Blood in the white or colored part (iris) of your eye.
- Swelling of the eyeball.
