This answer was rated:

My 15 yr. old grandson was hit by a baseball about 2hours ago. He was hit near the eyelid
and the eye is very swollen. He is complaining about blurry vision, headache,and dizziness.
Does he need to be evaluated by a doctor?

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you able to chat?

hi dr. im the grandson

Doctor DanB : Do you have double vision?


Doctor DanB : How about any nausea and/or vomiting?

i was nauseated but im feeling better

Doctor DanB : Unfortunately I do think you need to go to the ER to see an ophthalmologist because you may very well have a fracture of the bones around your eye which could lead to permanent damage if not treated soon. Does this make sense?



thank you we will go
