My sisters and I were messing around saturday & her left

This answer was rated:

my sisters and I were messing around saturday & her left elbow hit with a force to my eye on the outside corner. Since then my eye is swollen practicly shut closed. I have placed ice & and off , the eyeball itself is 80% red, its red inner corner, all underneath curving over to the other end of the eyeball red. The bruising color is showing on the inner corner of my eye by my nose.. What would you recommend? and What treatment should i be doing? Should I put eyedrops in my eye ?

Hello there

you need to have an eye doc look at this for you, the redness in the eye indicates you had decent force and it may have internal bleeding also, that would need prescription drops. You need to get in and be seen, Regards *****
