Dear patient

The nature of injury you describe seems not grievous. But only thing that is little bit of worry is blurring of vision. It would have been better if you would have described the exact nature of blurring of vision. If that was just transient phenomenon then there is nothing much to worried about. But if the symptoms are on going then you need to consult a doctor. I don't think presence of past epilepsy has any thing to do about of present set of complaints
