Eyes misaligned(left crossed) when focusing, or relaxed. 2 yrs ago Hit frontal bonecorner of wall. There was bleeding, no concussion. Possible link?

Yes can be linked: Head injuries are 1 of the most overlooked causes of ocular misalignments & motility abnormalities. You may have had a concussion without realizing it. Concussion does not require loss of consciousness for the brain to have suffered damage. You should see a doctor for the potential concussion (e.g. neurologist) & a neuro-ophthalmologist for the crossed eye condition. Repair may be possible. ...Read more

Had a concussion 2 months ago headaches and dizziness has been soing good now i just feel like my eyes losing focus sometimes like zoning out?

Postconcussive phase: Your symptoms are consistent with a postconcussive syndrome or phase of recovery although the "zoning out" concerns me a bit. If your concussion knocked you out for more than a few minutes then, the risk of seizures climbs substantially. Consider reporting this to your doctor. You may benefit from testing and/or consultation with a neurologist. Questions/Appointment? www.healthtap.com/dr-saghafi ...Read more

It akes a long time to go down, May be a permanent lump but no harm. As blood that accumulates as part of scalp bruises is affected by gravity, some will move down around the eyes giving black eye appearance. ...Read more
