Early February I got hit in the eye at cheerleading practice. The weekend I went in for emergency eye surgery because my right orbital floor fracture. I’m aware that double vision is common after this injury but after a month I don’t notice any improvement.
Things that are close have minimal double but when things are far away, it’s a split screen. It’s a vertical overlap but it’s sometimes slightly to the side. Additionally, my right eye (previously 20/20 vision) seems very hazy, and it sees colors more dull like. When things are moving fast, like in a car, my right eye sees the road as fast moving grains of color.
I’ve been using an eye patch to help. My surgeon is sending me to another specialist because he believes that I may need muscle surgery.
Is my eye likely to heal on it’s on? Will the surgery help? My current doctor said he’s not confident that it will. Is what I’m seeing normal? I hear stories about double vision but not about color and grainy images which is what confuses me.
Thank you for the help in advance
