Had got kicked in eye. Eye lids swollen. Sees black dot in vision. Solution?

My 16 year old daughter got kicked in the left eye by accident at a sports practice when she dove on the ground near someone's foot. She has swelling and scratches on her upper and lower lid. She says she sees a tiny black dot in her vision on and off. Should we go to the ER or wait until tomorrow to see an eye doctor?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
I would recommend you to see an ophthalmologist & have her retina checked(to rule out vitreous detachment or retinal detachment).
Does she have flashes(like lightening in front of her eye)? If it's only black dot, may be there is nothing really serious....but it's a curriculum to have your eye completely checked if you have an history of blunt trauma.
