17 month baby, swollen, red and teary eyes after getting hit. Anything to worry?

Hello,

Today at about 5:40pm my 17 month old baby poked her eye with a large plastic round umbrella spoke. She cried for about 5 minutes then seemed better and all normal. It's been about 3 hours now and she woke up from a nap, eye is very swollen, teary, and red. It's clearly bothering her hence she's been rubbing it and crying. (On our way to ER.) What is the worse and the least possible outcome (diagnostic)?

greetings,
as i can see that she has hit herself with that umbrella,i can say the outcome varies.
depending upon the extent of injury.
it can be that nothing happens to her,but again at the same time it might require urgent care and intervention.
so ideally on physical examination only one may come to know of it.
hope this helps.
and good luck.
