In brief: Eye injury

Generally any eye injury should be evaluated by an md because your personal evaluation cannot necessarily detect problems that may require treatment.
Particularly important to have a prompt evaluation for change in vision, pain, floaters, flashes, bruising, scratchy sensation, double vision, discharges, loss of vision, just to name a few.

In brief: Vision changes

Anything that causes visual changes, pain, floaters or double vision should be evaluated quickly.
If uncertain, get examined - reassurance is priceless!
