Eye Still Blurry 10 Days After Being Punched

10 days ago I was attacked after going out and had to have 2 stitches in my eyebrowe, sustained a fractured cheekbone, bleeding nose and numbness on the right side. My eye was swollen and closed for about 4 days. Its now 10 days later and the right eye is still blurry, could the eye be permanantly damaged? Or can it take this long to get the vision right? Im praying the eye isnt damaged, I cant handle anymore major problems with me, espcially when its been caused in such a rediculous manner.

Cheers.

Re: Eye Still Blurry 10 Days After Being Punched

Since you had stitches, you obviously got medical attention. Did a doctor look inside your eye? Whether the damage is permanent or transitory depends on what harm was done. There could be blood inside the eye and that takes some time to clear up. But if nobody checked the eye, then get to an eye doctor asap.

Yer I did see an eye doc and she said theres an abrasion on the eye. Not really sure what that is but it sounds like some sort of cut/graze?

Ive been putting eye drops in to protect the eye, just really want the blurry vision to go, its nasty.

Ok, an abrasion is a scratch on the cornea. That's the glass-like covering over the iris and pupil. That can take varing lengths of time to heal depending on the severity. Will you be seeing the eye doc again for a follow-up?
