Detailed Answer:
hello and thank you for sending the question.

I think at this point since you still have symptoms associated with this injury that it is in your best interest to visit with your local ophthalmologist for a good physical examination to determine if you have a specific injury involving the eye.

this may be something that might go away slowly with gentle care but I think it is important that you see the doctor so that he can perform an exam and look at your eye with specific instruments that might tell us if you need some type of intervention.

I think you should try to make this appointmentas soon as possible.

Again since you still have symptoms I would try to be seen as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

Dr. Galamaga
