I got hit (sort of poked) in the eye really hard and it seems like my eye has been pushed back further into socket. Swelling has gone down (have been icing) and my vision is absolutely perfect and pain has decreased but Just wanted to know if it's possible to knock an eye into socket further?

Hello,

Sorry to know about your injury.

I need to know a few more things regarding your eye such as-

Does the affected eye move completely in all directions?

Is there any double vision in any particular gaze?

Can you send an image if possible?

This is just an information request and I look forward to your reply.

Thank you

my eye moves in all directions and my vision is perfect. I took a Tylenol and pain seems to be going down...just feels like my eye is further into my face. Will send pictures

Thank you for the reply and for the image too.

Yes the right eye appears to be smaller but that could be due to the edema. Very unlikely that the eyeball has been pushed inwards due to a poke.

Enophthalmos is the term for inward push of the eye. However you do not seem to have that as seen on the image. Give it some mire time to resolve and I am sure that eye would soon appear the same as the other.

Thanks and best wishes

My eye sockets have hurt for the past three months. I saw an
My eye sockets have hurt for the past three months. I saw an ophthalmologist, he gave me a dilated eye exam and said he found nothing wrong. Since then I've observed more symptoms that could be important. It feels like the lower half of my eye sockets, directly under the eyeballs and deep, are inflamed, or like they have lots of small shards of glass embedded in them and can't heal. It doesn't go away with sleep. The pain varies throughout the day, and sometimes I go a few days where it seems like it's going away, but it never goes away completely and always gets worse again. It's pretty random and difficult to tell what effects it, but one thing for sure is that doing activities which exert my shoulders and neck for prolonged periods of time makes it much worse the next day. For instance, if I carry many heavy boxes, or if I shovel several times throughout the day, the next day the pain in my eye sockets will be really bad, and it'll stay really bad for a couple days at least. Also, the sides of my neck are occasionally painful, and it feels like the skin around the neck and jaw is tingling and burning, like an odd electricity sort of feeling like the neck had fallen asleep and just woke back up. I suspect that the movement of my neck might have an effect on the eye socket pain, but it's difficult to tell since the pain isn't immediate. What could be causing this? … read more
