Hi my mum is 50 she had a blow to her left eye when a child that lives next door threw a apple out on his bedroom into her garden and it happened to hit her from that height straight in the eye. It was blood shot swollen and painful for about 2 days until the black eye come out. It was ok until now (2 weeks have passed maybe more) she had developed black spots in her vision constantly and ahe explains as like a bitterly in front of eye constantly she keeps checking it anything is on the eye but nothing does anyone know what this could be? Does she see a optician or her gp? Thanks I'm really worried about her
Take her to an Opthamologist, not an optician. An optician is not a doctor and she needs a thorough eye examination - SOON! Don't delay.
They will likely dilate her pupils so that the blood vessels can be examined. Again, this is not something that an optician would be expected to perform. There is a possibility of damage to her retina or the blood vessels to it.
She may need a ride home due to the dilation. Again, don't delay. Any eye injury needs to be treated as an emergency.
Thanks so much Dan
