Watchful waiting: Allow up to 3-4 weeks for the bruising and swelling to resolve. There is hardly any need to be concerned at this stage.

Opthalmology consult: You need to go to the ER to have an Ophthalmology consult immediately. Your globe, or eyeball, needs to be examined along with your vision and a full history and physical needs to be performed. Studies show orbital fractures can occur in isolation but any compromise of your globe, optic nerve, and other associated fractures need to be identified and any damage to vital structures assessed.
