I was just playing with my dog and accidentally got hit in

Customer Question

I was just playing with my dog and accidentally got hit in the eye. My eye was shut but I feel like my eye got pushed back. It hurts a little but I can see fine. Is it possible for that to happen? I don't have a lot of money to run to a doctor whenever so I want to know if it's important to go to a doctor or something like this.

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

If there is no significant pain then it is unlikely that you have a corneal abrasion. Also, since your vision is OK I think that there was no significant damage done.

Dr. Rick :

From what you have posted I think you do not have anything to worry about and there is no need to go to an eye doctor at this point.
