Anesthesiologist 's  Response
Please remember that only a part of the eyeball is visible from the outside. It is important to have the inside and posterior part of the eyeball checked for any hemorrhage or any injury also. Therefore any trauma to the eyeball has to be thoroughly examined by an ophthalmologist and without delay.
