my face (landed on my upper left cheek..my eye..headache..concussion

Resolved Question:

On Monday I fell on the left side of my face (landed on my upper left cheek near my eye) while playing football. I had a headache but no signs of a concussion (impaired motor skills, memory loss, vomiting, nausea, etc.). However, ever since waking up on Tuesday I've had blurred vision in my left eye. By blurry I mean I wear contacts and my vision is such that it feels like I'm not wearing a contact in my left eye.

Should I be worried or is this something that should clear up on its own?

Hello
You should be examined immediately
This can still be a post concussion syndrome.
It might be damage to the eye.
You should actually go to the ER.
You an not assume it will clear up on its own

I would see a doc today.

good luck
