A 22-year-old female asked:

Poked my eye when putting on glasses with one hand. the leg/earpiece of my glasses poked my eyeball before i could blink. it hurt a bit but my vision is normal, maybe a tiny tad blurry. the eye is not red or irritated. do i need to see a doctor?

Minor trauma to the orbit can cause corneal abrasions, and hematomas. If visual acuity or eye appearance is not normal, or there is pain also with blinking, an optometrist or primary care provider can reassure you
