Customer Question
I just was hit...

I just was hit in the eye with a pickleball and my pupil is slightly dilated. Do I have a major emergency on my hands?

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

My vision is all right. I had a complete check up a year ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I am in good health and was STUPIDLY not wearing goggles.
