While in the shower yesterday I happened to give my closed right eye a glancing blow. It's still aching a bit. The eye itself looks the same, although occasionally the pupil looks a bit larger than the other eye. The vision is still the same. Should I get this looked at?

Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
I think as long as the eye is not significantly red and painful and the vision is still the same, then I think you are okay to continue to patiently wait with this. It is very common for one pupil to be just a bit larger than the other one at any given moment and as long as there isn't severe pain, a droopy eyelid, double vision, or significantly changed vision, this usually isn't anything to get worried about (provided the difference between the two pupils isn't more than about 1.5 millimeters or so). Does that make sense?
