My 11 yr old got hit in his left eye with a close-range

Customer Question

my 11 yr old got hit in his left eye with a close-range soccer shot yesterday. Complaining of blurry vision, a 'line' in the top of his vision and a blackish cloud on the bottom part of his vision.
JA: Keeping an eye on your eyes' health is important - for most people vision is their most valued sense. Our Expert will help you with which sort of vision doctor you should visit. Is there anything else important you think the Opthamologist should know?
Customer: there's no apparent bruising or abnormal dilation.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Opthamologist about your situation and then connect you two.

you need to bring her to an eye doctor for an eye exam

she could have a torn retina or hemorrhage in her eye causing these visual changes.

she could have injury to her cornea.

you should make that appointment as soon as possible.

or you can take her to the ER for an eye exam
