Injury to the head. Have concussion. Slight blurring in the eye, nausea and dizziness. What is the treatment?

I have a history of concussions (at least 6 documented concussions). I received a blow to the head snowboarding two days ago that ruined my helmet, but did not lead to unconsciousness or any memory problems. I now have slight blurring in my right eye, minor nausea and a bit of dizziness . the blow was top left of my head. Should i be worried and how should i treat this? I am 31 years old, for the record...

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Concussion is a type of head injury caused by sudden acceleration and deacceleration forces. The symptoms which you have quoted are blurring of vision, nausea and dizziness These symptoms along with the type of injury you have told indicate atleast minor form of head injury. These symptoms require further evaluation by investigations like CT scan to rule out head injury and treatment depending on the findings of the investigations. So please do consult your surgeon or nerosurgeon for further evaluation and treatment.
Thank you
