Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
What part of her head was hit?
forehead, to the right above her eye.
Was the jug thrown? Swung at her head hard? Fell from a short height?
she says when she looks left and right, and when she looks up and down, her eyes hurt, more the right than the left.
swung at her head hard.
they were noisemakers for the game.
Does she seem to complain of any double vision?
I do believe her symptoms are related to the milk jug hitting her head....
It is possible that is broke some of the bones around her orbit and/or caused bleeding behind her eyeball.
would it be just one eye or both?
As a father of 5 kids myself, I'd feel a lot better if a doctor had a look at her.
Just the eye on the side that was hit.
ok. 5 kids, huh?? :)
will do - thanks very much.
should we try to get in toinght?
The headache may be from something as minor as just minor trauma, a possible concussion or something worse.
or see how she odes in the morning.
Yup. 3 girls
Up to you. Does she have any other symptoms...nausea etc?
no, no nausea. she says just the dull headache all day. she said she has been involunatrily squinting her eyes a bit all day which i found strange.
The squinting could be from inflammation inside her eyeball (uveitis) from the trauma.
ok. i will talk to my husband and see what he thinks we should do.
thanks very much - enjoy those 5 kids!
I'd probably have her seen this evening....unfortunately that means the ER at this point.
we hav ea doctor is in. is that ok?
or right to ER?
Thanks. Got two grandkids already. Life is good.
If you can get to a regular doctor/peds md now that would be great.
ok. sounds good... thanks again. :)
